Love the linked rings and hollow spiral.  My husband's grandfather made a chain of linked rings and it's a family heirloom now.  Keep up with your work!

Thanks.  I'm working on the caged ball with the linked rings attached.  I hope it comes out ok.

Hi pinokeeo! Long time no see!
Nice work; your woodwork is always so lovely. Are you using a power tool or actual sculpting knives or what-have-you? (I don't know the terminology. Smiley)

Hi Calluna,

These carvings were all done with a bench knife (standard carving knife), but now I'm practicing with a dremel. 

In the jewelry section I have a couple of ivory pieces that I just carved and they were done with the dremel.  You can see them here.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=405803.new#new
