These wouldn't happen to be for sale would they?

These are all stunning, but something about the second one is especially soothing. As usual, Amazing Work!

The second one is sold (it seems to be most people's favorite of the four), the rest are still for sale (The Unsold Items folder in my gallery is the place to check, and if you want to buy something, just send me a note).

I'm drawn to this style anyway (I've got your channeled stone pendant), and the bottom two are just gorgeous. I love the ancient feel to them, as though the walrus ivory wasn't fossilized plain, but fossilized just this way and you found it (ancient shaman's pendant?). Very cool.

That's a beautiful idea, beautifully put. I'm going to have to check out your writing.

Simple, but still really nice. Where do you get the ivory from?

Thank you. :)

I get the ivory mostly from the same local store as many of the skulls and horns; The Bone Room: [link]
