Embedded Paisley


Andrew

Recommended Posts

I was asked to make a wedding gift for friends of a friend. Their wedding theme had lots of paisley's in it, so this is what I came up with.

 

The carving is from a Tagua nut and it's embedded in a burl of some unknown type. I found it washed up on the beach in Santa Barbara, CA. It's coloring is very similar Manzanita but it isn't nearly as dense.

I cut and polished the front and bottom faces of the burl and left the rest in it's natural state.

The Tagua carving is around 2.5 inches in length.
