Pendant made primarily from Mahogany but using almost every material I work with including Padauk,Blackwood,Purpleheart,Sycamore,Tulipwood, Yew,Bocote,Walnut,Leadwood & bone.
47mm wide by 48mm tall.
The colours aren’t quite as vibrant as when it was first made 3-4 years ago as many of the woods have oxidised,turning quite dark.

I would need new glasses after working on something this small with this much detail. It looks great!

Really nice. Couldn’t you refinish it to bring back the original colors?
