Working on Waxes

I've been working very intensely and didn't realize how long it's been since I posted last.

The very small carving of the Irish setter is close to done. The challenge of making a double bas-relief is challenging. The position of the legs and body have to work on both sides even though it's not 3 dimensional. Although I am creating the illusion of 3 dimensions.

I'm really looking forward to World Fantasy. I'm designing a pendant for it to commemorate its 40th year. I've been working on a group of designs for it, including a ring and a pendant set with delicate green garnet crystals and a stunning botryoidal opal design as a pendant.

I've been spending a lot of time at my wax bench in the last 10 days.
