I was asked by a good friend who knows i carve bone to make his wife a pair of mountain dulcimer earrings….well i was alittle taken back being i`m not into jewelry makin but what the heck i`ll give it a try. They came out looking great !! The bone carvings are 1 1/2” long with some nice detail. So i thought i`d try a pair of bone guitars for my wife, they came out really nice too. So i`m making about a dozen of the dulcimer earring sets to sell on a mountain dulcimer web site that i belong to. I added some pic`s of my bone collection and rough sanded bone blanks that i use to carve creations out of. Since i primarly make custom bone guitar slides i always have cut-off pieces from that. Wahich i now recycle into other carved creations.
