Curly maple, Katalox (Mexican Ebony), sterling silver and a chocolate pearl. I cut each piece on a scroll saw and then hand-shaped them. The clasp is a custom design made in Katalox. Finished with 2 coats of Seal Coat and 2 coats of spar varnish.

Nice harmony and I love the way the chocolate pearl looks with the wood.

Thanks, everybody! I’ve been working on making more organic and flowing pieces. Really emphasizing the natural aspects of the wood.

Thanks all! Doe, I’m planning on entering the contest, but I have another piece in mind – just need to get it posted! Trying to figure out the right sizes of photos so they show up nicely and haven’t quite gotten it yet…
