Imperial rhodonite chain

Hello Michael,

You have succeeded in carving the chain!  Such patience and restraint you have especially as the materials become thinner.  This stone is such a lovely color and appears to be translucent as well.  Thank you for posting the images.

Thanks Janel, it is very translucent, a very challenging carving, rhodonite is not as tough as jade and is more prone to fracture, but this piece is the best I have carved, still quite surprised it stayed in one piece, the next stage is sanding and polishing, takes easily as long as the rough carving stage.

Thank you for showing the completed piece.  I do admire your patience with attending to the complexities of carving and polishing chain links.  The color and luminosity is marvelous against the green jade background.  

Are you going to launch into a more simple piece next?
