    Looks great Charles. She must be one happy recipient. I like the brass bars which are, I assume for earrings.

    Very nice, Charles! I'm sure your granddaughter loves it.

    LOML and I have been discussing the design of a new floor standing jewelry cabinet for her. She likes what you did with the stair-stepped ring area.

    Very nicely done Charles. Did she like it? (Like I don't know already )
