My husband and I were overcome with joy when we received the beautiful cameo of our darling Bo. Gareth, you captured Bo's alert and impish aspect utterly. When I wear the cameo, everyone comments on what a stunning piece it is. We greatly appreciate the workmanship and expertise that went into your creation. What a wonderful heirloom we have...Betsy, California.
