Sir Drake, I'm impressed. In the words of Gladys Knight and the Pips, "keep on keepin' on"

Awww - I just saw the turtle! Really like him! You've got some amazing stuff going! I'm very interested in metal, as soon as I get some time.... (Just like stone, bone...)

thanks, meiko. i sold the turtle. the girl was so cute when she got it. her boyfriend bought it for her.

here's the latest finished piece of jade. (well, not quite finished. it needs a hole and a lanyard.)



it's new zealand jade. these large, smooth pieces are much harder than they look. the big, smooth space can show off the flaws so much easier.
