Andy and I have recently celebrated our 40th anniversary! Considering we work together in a business which can often be stressful and have seven children (who can also be very stressful) we consider 40 years to be worthy of a big celebration. It has been only by the grace of God and we are still crazy about each other.
We have decided to take a trip to England this fall. We have been wanting go there every since we sent our first table over to show in Patrick Mavros’ Silver Gallery in London. That was 5 years ago and we now have, thanks to Patrick and his family’s support and help, two tables in Harrod’s of London. That is a really big deal for us and we would love to go see them there, so, this October we are making the trip.
In Patrick’s Gallery the Queen has sat at our table for tea as well as the King of Spain and other royalty. We may not get to see them while we’re there but we can dream!
This is the table we have just finished and are sending to London soon. Patrick asked us for a “drop dead georgeous table” and this is what we did. It is 11 feet long and as spectacular as we could make it. The inlays they used in this table are #8 Turquoise (a rare variety), Apache Gold Vein Marble, Malachite, red Coral, Azurite-Malachite, 2 Ammonites, Marble, Geode (shaped like a butterfly), and tri-color tiger’s eye.
