I don't think anything is as beautiful as polished metal. ;-) I suppose that had some part in the reason I became a metalsmith. Also nothing looks so nasty as badly tarnished silver. So now you may ask why am I showing you these pieces. Hopefully, you will look beyond the state they are in, to see what I think was the finest work in miniature silver that has ever been done.
Obadiah was a friend. It has been many years since I have spoken to him. I can't find anything on the Internet about any recent work made by him. If anyone knows what happened to him I hope you will let me know. I hope you enjoy seeing his work.
