Never been a “blue person” but this particular lapis has very little white and the predominant blue tones are nice and deep.

If I ever catch up on orders I plan to to “inject” some new exotic woods and inlays into my bentwood ring collection so wish me luck bending and sanding…and sanding…and sanding. :)

Thanks Bub! The stone is called blue lapis.

Tim – Your correct, I need to incorporate more lapis for my inlays.

I too am intrigued by how you bend such a tight radius on such a small scale. Very nice!

Thanks again, Shannon! I’ve heard that lapis has a tendency to crack. Did you have any problems with it?
