Something I’ve had on my to-do list for years, but I still can’t find a decent 17th century looking glass part to do it.

I don’t remember ever seeing that design before :) box is a great choice for such thin spindles.

Yes, the glass piece is part of a very old hourglass.
He inspired me to make this mine and the other one.
I love the sands of time, but it was terribly difficult!
looks so easy, but have So many parts and fit!

Such incredible talent. I am amazed at the things you can do. It is such an intricate piece. I’d be afraid to touch it with my clumsy hands. I can’t even fathom how you were able to cut and assemble such a fine piece.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Beautiful work, Mariya. I’ve always enjoyed looking and admiring your work. The third picture shows how perfect you make those cuts. WOW, great work, Mariya! By the way, I saw quite a few postings of your work on Etsy. How is that working for you?
