thanks,this one was an on/off thing for about 4-5 weeks,jade being as hard as it is,takes a while to shape and get a decent finish on,where as bone is a breeze to work with,biggest headache was trying to get the right balance and flow between the 2 mediums,and to devise a technique of bonding the 2 ,cheers

Amazing, how did you got the fixation between bone and jade?

thanks,i carved a channel through the center of the bone,the jade has 3 stems carved with small "feet" on the end of them,it was then rolled into the channel and the channel filled with an industrial 2 part epoxy called powerfast,(we use it to fasten down railway lines at work,so that part was experimental,and has worked to date)excess was then sanded back :-)

This is a really gorgeous design. The green of the jade really complements the creamy bone - so beautiful. Did you carve those pieces yourself?

thanx,& yes,its all hand carved,a bit of an expermental piece actually,wasnt sure if it would work out the way i wanted,and with the time it took to shape the jade into the right balance,im glad it did :-)

Well it worked out really beautifully! Well worth the time, and the fact that it's hand carved is really impressive. What special work.
