Lucky 13 in Dexter



Asked if he's made any contribution to the jewelry case yet, Maves says, "Hey, give me a break! I've only been here three days!"

"It takes about fifteen years to become a good wax carver," adds Owen, showing off a box of his own carvings that will eventually be cast into silver, gold, platinum, or even cobalt or titanium.

Owen says his own tastes tend toward "abstract and asymmetrical." As for stones, Maves offers that "diamonds never go out of style," though Owen confesses that "personally, I like the off-the-wall stuff." He pulls some of his current favorite rocks out of the display case: "Rutilated quartz with little rods of gold. Here's some tanzanite--it looks like a sapphire. This pink one is morganite." Some of the most expensive precious stones, he feels, are a little overrated. "After all, a ruby is nothing more than a red sapphire," he sniffs.
