Paula says - "Peterson kids around that people who have seen his jewelry in person call him "the machine" because he is SO meticulous in every detail. The box clasp on this watch is a perfect example - it is very heavy (note the weight of this piece) and crafted with skill and precision to last a lifetime and be passed along to the next generation. A truly singular work of art. His hand crafted leaves are unlike any others I have ever seen. Peterson Johnson is a very special artist."
