Looking good Gman! Nice chunky bit of bone & jade eyes are always a winner in my book!

Have you ever made the eyes a donut/wheel shape (with a hole in the centre) & then set over a 'peg' left in the centre of eye-socket? Helps to key in the inlay & makes the addition of 'pupil' uneccessary. Just a thought... T3

Tama - yeah I've tried it before, but it didn't work out so well - I broke the central post out. Bummer. Never tried it in bone though. These greenstone beads already have a pilot hole, so I'll just open them up and add a bone plug. Also, the eye holes were already cored.

I got the little man today when I got back from my "getaway." He is absolutely killer, way better than the pics show and the cords are the PERFECT length. Huge thanks for this!

Also, I got the killer beach pebble and the cut stone. Thanks so much! I see SO many pieces in the cut stone - I have two drawn already! I will send some of this over to Benz so he can delight us all! Thanks for the mailing and the additional stone. I appreciate your generosity.

-Gman

Thanks Benz and JOnEs; Pighammer indeed!

I haven't been carving for the last little while, so here are a buncha pics showing some progression of the bone warrior. I hope you like them.















Thanks for looking,

-Gman

Thanks Kings, I'm glad you approve. I still need to fit the eye sockets and work the bone inlays into the greenstone eyez. After the fitting he will get aged and then I can set his eyez in. I'm hoping he continues to cooperate....
