I find inspiration from people who live their fullest life possible.  It was a blessing to have known once such individual named Nathaniel R. Dixon. He was family and today is a posting about a jewelry book he shared with me. Nat lived until he was 93 years young and he never took anything for granted, he even decided to remarry in his last year of life. He was craftsman of many trades, one of them being jewelry. I appreciated how he shared knowledge gleaned from years of life experience with those he loved. That is one reason this jewelry book means so much to me. It is a reference that designers should make apart of their vast libraries. I know I have found it useful.

You are missed Nat.
