does anyone have any interest in purchasing this as a pendant? i'm thinking of making it in white and red bronze and silver. i've also been thinking about having some powder coated in a matte black.

Perry, looks like that new equipment is workin' out for you. The Sufferin' Bastard texture translated well from wax master to cast sterling, very nice!

Perry, the monkey is looking very "Moai-ish" I hadn't seen the picture of the back, nice.

I think the birds are awesome! (and thanks for the quarter for reference, that really helps people get a visual for the size)

thanks, mike. you're one of the reasons i keep doing stuff.

yeah, the quarter. people don't realize how small some of my stuff is. i don't think they realize how hard it is to carve, as well. wax can be just as hard as bone or jade on some levels. it's more frustrating on others. the thin parts seem to break more often that the other materials. they're easier to repair, but it can get frustrating.

Can't wait to see the Barrel O' Monkeys monkey finished! You can do them in different metals and we could buy them all and link them together for a multi-layered fun pendent! You do REALLY nice work.
