Snap Shot No. 3

“Hey! I told a friend in France about our Blog and he said he would have known it was mine even if I had not told him because he recognized my hands in the picture,” laughed Silvio. “As boys, we spent afternoons playing the guitar together.”

On the bench, today, a beautiful turquoise and fossilized coral bracelet is taking shape. “There will be hinges between each stone,” explains Silvio, “right now I’m making the base.”

He pulls out another bracelet from a bag. “I made this a while back. It hooked on something.  I have to reconstruct one of the hinges.”
