Stone Chain

 

This is a 3 link chain I carved with hand tools to see if I was patient enough to scrape away bit by bit, ever tediously. I am debating whether or not I want to polish this thing. I bought this stone in Italy. It took about a year- over many small sessions in bits of free time (not many). I think I could make this in a few days only using a dremil tool…

Material: Bianco Alabaster, opaque and translucent veins.

    Would you be interested in making a longer chain on commission?
