A big MAHALO to everyone for the super nice comments: TikiG, 4WDtiki, surfintiki, laojia, McTiki, GROG, Clarita, amate, Jazzy Josh! It's always great when you peeps stop by.

I attended a "killer" Halloween party last night, paying for it this morning. Perhaps a hangover is the perfect thing to get one focused on carving? Hmm, probably not. This one started off very different than how it fished up. I wasn't planning to do the paua "wings" they just sort of happened on their own.


It was a nice challenge to get the patterns on the shell to match.


That red in the paua is just my red t-shirt reflecting in it.


I inset both pieces from the sides, it's not one piece going through the whole thing... or is it?


Sort of looks like a space ship to me from this angle.

The new pendant is pretty damn cool, Ray. It reminds me of some sort of insignia - an emblem for a secret society perhaps? The paua shell symmetry and matching patterns really kick the pendant into high orbit.

I'm happy to see you've returned to your chosen art again after the hiatus from your workbench. Nice job.

My first thought was that it looked alien

Beautiful design and flawless execution Mango

Very interesting and pretty piece, that inlay seems very complicated, I'm glad that those wings happened on their own they look great!

Ray, that is so cool looking, what a design! It right away gave me the idea to do a White Shark tooth in that style. ...errr, maybe a spaceship!
I think it'd be hard for me to do the serrations on the Pau though. What's your source for your shell? Yours looks pretty thick compared to the stuff I get off ebay.
Sweeet!

I've been away for over a month! My how time flies. I wish I had a huge update, but I don't. To laojia, TikiG, MadDogMike, Clarita, surfintiki, and Benzart.... thank you all for the comments. Surfintiki, to answer your question, I know a couple of people that live in New Zealand, and was lucky enough to have been the recipient of a paua shell. It was so nerve wracking to cut that beautiful shell apart.

This was a horrible experiment with a tea stain. Benzart tells me he stays away from this sort of thing due to how fickle the bone can be. You hardly ever get an even stain in bone, and I've learned that you don't ever get the same results either.


This was a commission, no cord needed, but they wanted a hole for a jump ring.







I was really trying for a reddish stain, but for some reason on this piece of bone the color just wouldn't come through for me. On a lighter note, I am now the owner of a lazy susan for clay. I've been goofing off in polymer clay just to get used to tools and stuff. Not ready to post anything related to that. I need a lot of research in that medium. As always, mahalo!
