Here’s an early bespoke piece back in for a service

 

Here’s a flashback to a piece I made when I first started out. This chunky Amazonite “pocket stone” came from a local rock shop. I loved the colour and felt there was a better destination than a deep dark pocket for this one. Continue reading “Here’s an early bespoke piece back in for a service”
