You're the second person to ask me that today :)

They're more hobby pieces. But I may run out of room and start selling them then.

Finished another little hexagonal jewellery box. This is made from Sapele with brass highlights.









Very nice boxes and orchids.  :tellmemore:

The brass inlays are well done and they are becoming a marker of your style. It would be interesting to do similar inserts with glass rods or some of the stones you use in your jewellery.

I find it totally absorbing. When I'm doing it there is just one point of focus everything else just disappears. :D

I have been thinking about haematite beads :)

And the router tip you gave me a while ago gets used regularly.

The orchid was a present to my wife from one of her friends last year. I just keep watering it and it keeps flowering. Seems like a good deal to me :D

Yes. it's a pair of 6mm dia x 3mm Neodymium magnets. They are remarkably strong for their size.
