Just as some elegant jewelry is made out of precious gems this necklace is made out of what I consider the most precious woods, ebony and pink ivory. This is my first experience working with these woods. I discovered that working with ebony is pure joy. By sanding with grits up to 3200 I was able to obtain a mirror like finish on the ebony. My experience with the pink ivory was similar. This is the first piece of jewelry I have made and found the most difficult part of the project was mounting the ebony and pink ivory on the chain.

This is a wonderful necklace, looks one-of-a- kind and more precious than gold.

Excellent, Roger. As an Ebony fan I concur with your love of it’s finishing qualities. A beatiful piece.
