Colla Wood Pendant and New Carvings

I'm working on some new carvings in wax including a gorgeous slightly recut large opal tear drop and a ring with small rubies and diamonds. It feels really good to be settled into carving.

Thinking about the new guest of honor design for Wiscon.

Photo is of a Turkish colla wood pendant in sterling silver about 2.5" high. The stone is unusual in it's coloration and superb quality.

From the collection of David and Pierce Ludke
