    All very beautiful and all look wonderful in the space. Mo we have referred to you as the space cadet in yrs long past but your work is really out of this world. You have shared so much of yourself in everything that you do and I have learned so much from you over the years. You continue to inspire me. The Starry Necklace is pretty special. I hope the exhibition goes well.
