These necklace pendants were made for my daughter, daughter-n-law, and ex-wife as christmas gifts.The one with the chinese symbol was for my ex, and is made from cocobolo w/sterling silver inlay. The one with the celtic cross was made for my daughter-n-law, it’s cocobolo with a mother of pearl inlay. The third one was made for my daughter, it’s made of bubinga and cocobolo woods. one side is cocobolo with a sterling silver celtic cross inlay, the other side is bubinga with an inlay of her dog. This inlay is made from ebony, elephant ivory(pre-ban), black mother of pearl, brown lip mother of pearl, white mother of pearl, gold mother of pearl and pink mussell shell. Please excuse the appearance of the green “non slip” matt I was using as a work surface, as you can see it’s well used, and since I don’t have a photoshop type program to change the background, there’s not much I could do about that. And since these pendants are no longer in my possession, there’s no chance for a re-shoot .These shots were taken on the fly without much thought for proper set up.
