Nightshade Progresses

I spent almost al of today working on the nightshade pendant.  It has, as it turns out, the berries as well as the flower.  Given the purple of the actual flowers, it really looks great carved in purple wax. I'm working on it again tomorrow and hopefully finishing the druse crystal malachite Chinese mountain pendant.

I just got an amazing opal from my cutter. It's lowland Ethiopian opal.  A clear golden color with a flamboyant vivid red flash. 

And I think I've finally figured out Esme's (Granny Weatherwax)  broomstick from Pratchett's Disc world.   I've been wanting to do another Disc world piece for quite a while.

Tomorrow should be another good working day.

Mood: Satisfied
