WT #114, finished crushed turquoise inlay and outside finishing on the vessel.
I spent 2 days doing inlay work with crushed turquoise and some coal and sanding and finishing the outside of the vessel. This piece will have a ring of semi-precious minerals such as agate and jasper inlaid around the top shoulder of the vessel. In the photo you can see the groove I cut into the top of the piece that the polished lapidary cabochons will fit into. The lapidary work will take more time than I have into this project thus far.
