      I love the perfection of the faceted stone in opposition to the rawness of the steel washer and the amazing precision of the pressure setting, a daring and difficult technique!

    I know I’m meant to admire the ring (I can see why you splurged on it), but I am so thrilled to see your hand, Mo. The maker’s hand.
