THE BENCH...NOW MORE THAN EVER

by Del Cook


As each week passes, we are experiencing a renewal of the original passion to sit at the workbench and see beautiful pieces of jewelry come alive. So many types of jewelry are now mass-produced and weakly constructed; this does not encourage lasting appeal. As the Holiday Season fast approaches, we are designing and planning more unique (and very affordable) rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. We can hardly wait to show them to you!
