  1. I have some earrings I am working to convert from clip-on to pierced. They are valueable as well as precious to the owner. They were made in 1930-1940's Siam (before name change to Thailand). I need suggestions on how to loosen, remove, jewelers glue on the screw-peg that is inserted in the very old Elephant Ivory without damaging the Ivory. Three were reasonably easy to unscrew or simply required some use of a automobile points gauge thin gauge 9 and 10 slide under or between the Ivory and finding. The last one moves left and right a bit but is really stubborn. The silver pieces I cannot remove the backing without breaking either the Silversmithing (on the round ones) or breaking the cabachon on the bell shaped one. I have decided to cut the old clip/screw attachement off and use my dremel to smooth that edge down then rough it up back minimally and simply apply a new Sterling Silver cup post to the back with E6000 glue. Any suggestions are welcome! Rebecca (aka Feralgodmother)

    Ivory Carving Eye Candy

    I thought the ivory and bone carvers might enjoy seeing this ivory fan. My wife collected this a long time ago, it's Quing dynasty 18th century.

    I have been carving for twenty years using mostly local BC woods, juniper, cedar, arbutus,from southern British Columbia and mammoth ivory and jade from northern British Columbia. A google image search for bcwoodcarver will show my carvings.
