Alan, it's such a joy to see how you're progressing with your glass work. Your wife does a great job putting things together also. What gauge wire did she use for the choker? My teenage daughter has wanted me to make her one.

Geez Alan,

Anything you don't do well ? Those beads are lovely as is your wife's silver work.

Now if I could master watercolors as fast as you are mastering glass I'd be.....well, you. LOL.

Your jewelery work is really coming along beautifully.

Cheers, Li
