Ammonite Fossil Inlay

Here are my first prototype of a pair of Bolivian Blackwood with ammonite and dust filler inlay. They measure 2 1/4" I.D. over all and are 5/8" in width. The fossils measure 1 3/4" and the gaps are packed and sealed with the scrap dust.Ammonite Fossil Inlay-dsc00016.jpg

Those are fantastic! Both the wood and the ammonites. Where do you get those ammonites? - they're great. The Bolivian blackwood is beautiful, too.

Whether you are into body mod or not, you can't deny talent and you, my friend, definitely have talent. Another great piece!!

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

They are rare fossils I picked up in Asia. The quality was some of the best I have seen. I 4 more orders pending. I will post pics when they are complete. These new ones have a great color and will be filled with a lighter dust. Should be fun. The Bol. Blackwood was a rare cut I have been saving for a few tears now. I cant seem to find anymore that is 2 toned like these.
Thanks for the compliment
