Doing custom pieces is good. It kicks me into working even when I don't want to. Also, I tend to fill the period of nothingness when waiting for the etching to happen with doing something vaguely useful. So today I have made two pieces (well, technically three, but one was a bit of a failure). One was another Curious Crow ring (like this) for someone, while the other was entirely new (hurrah) and involves bone (double hurrah). It's here (and pictured below) and I have to say I'm quite pleased. It wasn't too hard to make, and it looks interesting when it's being worn. The only problem with it is that it's not as sturdy as something entirely made of silver, but that's to be expected.

Since I consider it rude to add someone without asking, I'm asking if it is okay to add you as a friend?

Absolutely. I have added you back.

I really like that. How do you find working with bone? I have vague memories of our bone carving module at school, it was dusty but a surprisingly easy to shape (cow bone, if I recall).

My limited experience is that I like it so far! I haven't done much with it yet, but a friend has just returned to the region and she's had a workshop in bone-working, so I might pick her brains.

The smell of the dust is slightly odd, though - a little like horn but less unpleasant.
