Truly beyond words. I originally found Esquivel & Fees 12 years ago when I purchased the 14K GOLD HANDMADE SCHNAUZER PENDANT. When I lost my best friend "Barson" February 10, 2020, I was back on the web site, just looking. I came across the Rainbow Bridge Bronze Box and purchased as a remembrance. I am very happy I did. As before, Ted went above and beyond and crafted an exceptional item. The bronze is the epitome of craftmanship, skill, and pride in name and product. The first I noticed when I received the box was the weight, 364 grams. Once you pass the amount of metal in the piece you notice all of the detail. From EVERY angle you notice the precise hand hammering, the foliage (the tree, leaves, flowers), you then notice the wooden rail bridge with the hanging ropes, and the paws crossing the bridge. The sterling silver water is full of life. The water appears to be undulating in a summer breeze. Absolutely sublime. One would think "what could make this item any more prodigious..." I opened the box to see a "dog bone" in the bottom of the box with "Barson" engraved on it. While the craftmanship of Ted's and Julian's items speaks for itself, the thoughtfulness of adding that one small thing speaks to their humanity. Sometimes one small random act of kindness or thoughtfulness can make even the most tumultuous experience a tad bit more bearable. Thank you for sharing your talent and your art.
