Nice job bro!
you ever work with mother of pearl?
Yes, I've worked with it some but, not gun grips.
A few knife handles & fish lures & guitar picks.
Pieces of pearl large enough for pistol grips are more expensive than Ivory these days. I mostly just fool around. I like to make goofy & different stuff.
Here are some OFF TOPIC Pics of two that I made.
I really should not be posting these here because they are not gun related...but, here goes anyway.
The top one is neat because it's articulated. It moves like a fish. It has pure silver pins & it was close to a pound of ivory with nice pearl fins & tail. It does not show in this pic but there is thin "sheet gold" behind the pearl eyes & the eyes go gold behind the pearl when you looked at them "dead on" neat!
I sold it.
The bottom one is smaller & the body is all pearl with silver eyes.
That is my wifes hand (by the way) I don't wear that color nail polish.

QK - those are a work of art in themselves - very pleasing to look at.
Mind you - I'd hate to use one and get it snagged!!
So - what is YOUR fave color nail polish then??

Sweet and a beautiful job.

Same here. With the luck I was having at OBX last week, I'd have my line break during a cast and send it flying to Europe. It was bad enough on the 2nd Gotcha plug I sent into orbit, losing that would make me cry.Originally Posted by P95Carry
Nice job on those. You are a true craftsman!

That's what I thought - looked way too nice to be anything else.
