Does anyone here have a tutorial on these items, how to's would be wonderful, and any images that are not already on the web. Thanks Janel for the soap box! Cheers to one and All

    Re; Roberts " little helper", I have tried to do some work on shell in an engraving block and was not happy with my attempt, however after employing that "engraving key" I can now make something that looks much better. If anyone here is working with shell I would like to hear rom them, and what type of carving and engraving that they are doing, and what type of shell that they are working with.

    Superb High Grade Jadeite Carvers

    Hey Lopacki, I look forward to that shell overlay article, I have seen several but really enjoy the item that you have made and I brought back a bunch of shell with me from travels that will work great for that! Thanks again.

    Giant Clam Shell?

    I can see why you have suggested giant calm shell, very nice looking stuff. For antler I would look to NZ venison growers. The base of a moose antler is not much different from the base of an elk antler, the crown buttons would work, just be selective.
