Hello Jurgen: I went to the site. I am very, very impressed with
the amount of it contains.

I want to tell you and your group at PGI how thankful I am for
your hard work to inform the bench jeweler. I am working on more
and more Platinum items and am even doing more custom work in

I have a technical question for you. If a man says something in
the forest and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still
wrong? Have a very merry Christmas.

I’d like to echo Michael’s thanks to Jurgen.

Jurgen, you’ve been a great help to me by teaching me and
advising me in several areas of the jewelry business, and I’m
extremely grateful. Your advice to me has never been wrong. Well,
my channel setting is still, errrr…

I recently moved into a new studio where we plan to set up a
soldering area for platinum. Expect more questions!!

Merry Christmas to all, hope too see you in Tucson,
