Oh Wink....... There is nothing I can say while the tears roll down my face as I can tell by reading what you have wrote how this man touched your life...... I don't think I can say anything else now............ but that sometimes there takes a person coming in to our lives that is so totally different from us to make us see what wonderful things can become and for us to be apart of it all just because we were patient enough to set and wait and see what it was in the end......

Wink I'm sorry that you lost your friend. May your memories keep him in your heart forever.
I love the look of his work-especially the last picture, the detail is incredible.
Good Health is all that matters, but great Bling can't hurt!

Wink - What a very moving story of your Friend and his talent for creating masterpieces. I am so sorry to hear of your Friend's passing. The jewelry is really beautiful. I, too, got tears in my eyes reading about Bei. He must have been a very special Friend.

A big hug going out to you for your sadness with his passing. It's never easy. But the wonderful memories you have of Bei and his dedication to his work will be with you forever!

Wink, I am so sorry for your loss. His work is very lovely, and I'm sure a part of him will live on through the pieces he sold.
I use my powers for good (usually)...
