    No jewels were harmed in this adventure :)

    Saw something online and one thing led to another (waiting for glue to dry) dug out some scraps of stabilized maple burl and the next thing you know voila:

    Now that is an idea, was going to make a few more and have them for the Ladies when I put up a table in the local annual craftsman sale at the Legion. But Sheath bling and lanyards are an idea and there was a wood lathe locally for $350 kind of over priced for the age but might be just the thing to have

    So far the couple of Ladies who have seen the jewelry have said ooooh , You know for a bunch of scraps and getting practice engraving and carving with the Dremel tool these have been getting addictive.

    So far I have a nice batch and even turned one on a lathe a friend loaned me, a little wood working lathe is not bad but turning rectangles down to round stock will stall it. Considering it is a Mastercraft mini lathe I am not at all surprised.

    Going to need more practice with applying Gold Leaf between now and tomorrow when I put it on a knife handle. The whole engraving a dear head on the tang and have it show through the clear red portion of the handle has been put off for another project since my engraving is still not the best just yet.
