Very nice. It’s wonderful that you can make such great pieces with such little wood. I especially like the first design.

I love your work..!! Do you show at the Uptown Art Fair in the twin cities? I am making my first trip this summer. Next time I am in the Stillwater area I’ll try to touch base. My wife loves to come up there.

I just saw these on LJ’s the other day. Can I ask what you use to finish them? I’m making some pendants for my daughters for Valentines Day but am debating how I want to finish them. They are made from Purpleheart.

A regular spray poly will work ok for finishing necklaces, and is the easiest. Other sprays like lacquer or shelac are also easy. Oil also looks good, but I don’t like needing to re-do the finish from time to time. Lately I have been using a paste wax that offers a bit of protection and just a slight shimmer and still lets the piece look and feel like wood. The wax can be buffed if you want to give more shine. Depending on the piece you made, oils and waxes can be hard to apply, they can get stuck in cracks. sprays don’t tend to do that as much.
