Fink,

Just came back for another look at the ray....damn nice! Anyway, here is a pic of the cord clasp I was talking about. These WILL NOT come undone. I made these on all of the pendants I sold in the 80's and 90's.

I finally finished my octopus today, thanks to a beautiful piece of pua shell from GMAN. Thanks GMAN! As usual, the pics don't pick up even a fraction of the deep and colorful finish, but I'm hoping to get a new camera someday. The color on him is much more golden than it looks here. He is going to be part one of a set, so stay tuned.





Mahalo!

Ahhhhhh Finky! That is tight! Yes, yes sir! That is one killer bone (I told you so!). Congratulations on a fantastic carve.

Finkdaddy,
Incredible work! Great mix of stylized design and realism! There's a quiet stealthy movement and grace to it! Bravo!
