    So sorry for your loss.
    Bruce sounds like a great guy.
    To work with someone so gifted is a blessing.
    These people are rare and should be treasured.
    All we can do is to pass on what we have learnt to others.
    RIP.
     
  2. Gent,
    Thank you so much.

    I'm throwing my tools away and taking up knitting. I can't even get correct panels to fit right and here's a roadster built out of thin air and a beetle

    Been busy with the London Art Fair so haven't been able to do much work on the Roadster.
    However did manage to make these new beads.

  23. This is such an inspired build! Would love to see some tech on casting these beads and how they are actually installed.
