My friend worked at a piano store, cleaning pianos, and she scored some of the old ivory that has broken off the tops of the keys, and gave them to me!!!! I am really excited to use them, but am curious to see what other people's ideas are.
Here's what they look, like but a couple of mine are chipped.
(This is not my picture, FYI)
Any ideas? I thought I could do something to change the shape, like cut, sand, buff, etc, or drill a hole to make a necklace or something.
If anyone has any experience with ivory and knows if it would split, crack or otherwise break by doing any of these things, I 'd appreciate the feedback as well. Thanks!
