Peter emailed me;
tragically, the correct verb is "had". Past tense.
then I looked back at Jeanette’s post;
Steven & Alma, my love, admiration and eternal gratitude to you
both; you're still with us in spirit...
I should have paid more attention to Jeanette’s post, rather than
just following the link. What a tragic loss indeed.
I’m aware of Neissing’s work with tension set jewellery (and I do
like much of their work) but somehow Steven’s designs had a little
something extra - perhaps a little humour or personality.
It’s very sad indeed when you find a designer you really admire, and
you look forward to watching what they come up with in the future,
only to find that they are no longer with us. It must be even more
difficult for those here who knew Steven and Alma.
