Words cannot express enough how much this piece moves me.

So I gave it a "This Rocks!"

Thank you all so much, I'll pass along your compliments. He's meticulous about beveling and polishing, every small leaf and branch has to be perfect and they each take hours. There are nearly 140 high lead crystal bevels in that piece, 140 x 2+ hours each. That's after drawing and cutting. The frames are custom made to his design as well. It's about the most precious thing I own, right up there with Grandma's wedding and engagement bands.
