Hi everyone. Alas, its been a long while since my last post. Just too busy with business, yard renovations and whatnot. Here is a Zebrawood votive with a new twist on inlay. I picked up a bag of tiny shells in Maine a couple of years ago. The colors were compatible and I thought the texture might work with this particular wood. I decided I really like it. The stone around the shells is green calcite, and it is over a gilded base. I left the shells open after the initial grinding; it gives even greater textural interest than completely filling with clear (or other) material. Shown with both clear and turquoise glass votives. Which one do you like best? Your comments are always welcome.
