Unfortunately, no one was at the SNAG booth when I went by it,
and Elaine wasn’t around at the part of the Gesswein booth that I
made it to. I did sign up for the Castaldo samples, met up with
Russ Spira and his wife Paulette for lunch, and was introduced
to Henry Shawah. Henry is nearly legendary in my mind, and at 78
is still actively making jewelry. We wandered around for 3 hours
admiring tools and materials, and talking shop.
