Lots of Carving

Today was a good day.  I carved waxes all day until just now.  

The Deco influenced piece is done in wax.   I finished 2 other pieces that I've been working on.  A druse malachite pendant that is set in a Chinese mountain design with bent pine tree and a diamond studded water fall
(I've been working on it forever.) is also almost done. And a carved antique jade set in gold is in progress.

I'm feeling burned out now but that's OK.  It was a very good day.

One of the photographs I was using for the malachite druse design.

Mood:  Very satisfied
