Just finished this. It's carved bone mounted on hardwood (Australian Jarrah) with waxed hemp cord binding. This is the most detailed carving I've done yet, the entire pendant is about 95mm long, so quite large (that's a little under 4 inches for the metrically challenged!)
The bone carving design is freehanded and based on my love of the Art Noveau and Victorian styles of decoration. For the back see [link]
As usual I'm not 100% happy with it and need to work out a way of polishing the bone down in the grooves and piercings better, if anyone has any tips let me know!
The binding attaches a loop on the back that allows it to be strung on chain or my preferences would be black velvet ribbon.
Comments welcome and appreciated.
