I was at an art show last weekend, and the shell in the first picture got broken. The customer was amazed when I said not to worry about it, that I had plans for it. I managed to get the pieces back together, and then carved out the diamonds and inlaid turquoise. It turned out so well that the next two got circle inlays, one has turquoise and aluminum, and the other is aluminum.
The first shell is cedar, maple and walnut, the next two are purple heart and maple. Finished with wipe on poly. Done just in time for this weekends show in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
