When I saw your work in San Anselmo it was the closest thing to the one of a kind work my staff and I used to create at a store I owned in Coconut Grove, Florida for twelve years. We did lots of custom shades and chandeliers made with charms and dipped crystals too. It was a pleasure to see such good craftsmanship as you display. I took lots of pictures and will be showing your work to some of my clients as I do interior design today. You are truly creative and an inspiration to behold! Please put me on any mailing list as I would love to bring my clients to a show of your work. (As it is, I’ve invited them to the Antique Mall next week….in hopes I can sell your work!)

Pure fun….and genius. I love stuff with character, you bring it to life. Let your imagination flow and ‘spring’ over the bumps.
