One of my HONEY pendants filled full of rare insect inclusions in Chiapas amber. Estimated age on amber from this region is 24-26 million years. These insects were frozen in time inside of fossilized resin, which has been cut and carved to make each one a unique display specimen.
Pieces like this are why I do what I do. There’s nothing more fulfilling for me than the challenge of making something unique and one of a kind for someone that is excited to own and wear it.
this next photo set i was trying to get all the ways these gorilla glass dichorics change color depending on lighting and angle (havn’t gotten the intense outdoor color yet). soo glad i got ahold of these. XD
Working on setting some of the last pairs of HONEY ear weights available from this casting run. Gorgeous Mexican amber going into these. Keep an eye out for the last pair available, which will be set with insect included amber.
Ulu Knife :: Guatemalan Jadeite, Olivewood, Beeswax, Hemp
The ‘Ulu’ is a traditional Inuit/Eskimo utilitarian knife (Ulu means “woman’s knife”) used for everything from sewing to processing wild game for food.
I had a lot of fun making this. Most of my stone work is dedicated to jewelry, so it was a nice change of pace to work on a different form and build an artful functional object. For scale, the blade is 4" across. Yes, it’s (very) sharp.
This will be in the February show at Glitch Gallery in Richmond, VA.
This box of gorgeous arrived from Australia yesterday afternoon. Stunning Marlborough Chrysoprase that will surely make some incredible jewelry. It will primarily be used for at least one pair of weights, and a few pairs of carved flowers.
