A jade fin! Cool idea, very creative. This would be a great one to wear on a fishing expedition!

PD, is that a Dime off to the left? even if it's a quarter, the piece is mighty small and looks nice. I would work on getting the lines more "Fair" or straight and continuous. The green of the Jade works Well with the bone color too. Is the jade piece a leftover you didn't want to throw away? Nice use for it if it was.

thanks ben, it's a quarter.

yeah, i'm trying to keep the lines straighter. it seems tough with the smaller pieces in the tight spots. that hook is a piece of padouk. it has a tight a grain, but can get soft in places. it's also pretty dry and brittle. it might not be the best choice for this piece. i might start over with something else. i have other ideas for the jade chips i have sitting around.

Wow, I thought that was a piece of bone. One trick on those long straight/curved lines is to use the Biggest diameter bur you have The smaller the bur, the more dips and lumps. Still, Looking really great!

yeah, i hate to use this term, but i need new tools. it's been tough lately. i hope i sell some stuff to buy tools to make better stuff.

here's one i'm working on tonight. i like it better that the padouk. it's a little beefier and will have 2 jade inlays.

It looks so pretty now all polished up, can't wait to see the inlays... The wood is really beautiful.

Nice, Perry! The inlays are going to bring that piece up to a very classy level.

Make some hooks using ZBrush!
