    Those are great forms... don't care so much for the olive one.. all the beads hide the beauty of the wood, but really like the African Black wood... never had any that that much contrast, but really like all the little inclusions, knots, etc..

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
