  15. hi to all againg , this proyect of the netzuke is not finish, since i decide to do this as close to perfection is pocible , now I understand what nathasha toll me that to reach the inside part will be dificult in jade in particular , hoo my good she was VERY VERY RIGHT, but thats part of the beautu of this type of proyects no??, I think in this year the piece will be done , I spend the hold year in perfecioning my polishing tecnikes, for this proyect , now I have reach the ceramic lookink type polishing on jade and it looks very nice , but this piece will have many textures higli polish mate and stting , now for jade and the streng there is nothing to worry becouse this piece is made on guatemal jadeita which is the hardest of thejadeitas in the planet , many times peaple think that jade is soft becouse the chinise carved and sale bohemita for jade that is e type of serpentine, nothing to do whit jade ,the jade is harder then steel and very resistent, in fact the year before when I was working on this piece I drop by accident e piece of 1 kilo on top of this piece from e distance of 30cm and I think it was brake in many pieces , but nop jajajaja not e songle crack not even internal nothing , so this will give you e idea of how strong it is , when I was working on this piece empting the inside , many of my carving beats broke becouse the friccion whit some part of the jade the steel wear out jajaja can you imaguine , I post some new pics in this week for you to see the result on this proyect , but something I can tell is , that after this proyect all my prespective of carving totaly change ,now I see the pieces more like e poem , where everything on the piece is as important as the principal piece , thanks to all of you ,for make me change my perseption on the carving ,
