You are a treasure to the jewelry community and an inspiration to
me. Your work exhibits my purpose for becoming a jeweler: excellent
design and precision metalsmithing that endures the test of time and
becomes prized artifacts in the future. With time and practice I hope
to create such amazing works. What a Craftsman!
