Just thought I would show this off, I have 1000s of crystals in stock here and have been looking for one very special crystal, I found a few close but where over size or to thick even ground a few to shape but just not right, this is one of my own projects that I have been working on for a couple of years and getting close to finishing. I had just about given up on getting a glass crystal of suitable quality.

I asked William could he make me one by hand to fit the odd shape, cost no object (within reason Smile) well about 3 weeks it was completed and is absolutely perfect in every way even under this high magnification photograph see how he managed to follow the irregular curves of the early hand made case, and nice bevel edge touch also, couldn’t be more pleased turned out to be a at a very reasonable cost also for such work.

To place an order, please call 415 255 8045 or email us.

The combined artistry Cool of two true craftsmen!

I hope everyone appreciates as much as Chris and I obviously do what our good friend William White is doing for all of us and how his singular efforts are moving this hobby forward. Before William's efforts what we are seeing in this and other topics documenting his work would have been practically impossible.
