This months challenge was creating a geometric design with straight lines, but no one defined what we could do within those outlines.  saved2

Stichite in Serpentine from Tasmania, send by a friend in Tasmania to try out


Very soft material to work with (I suppose Soapstone like), but solid and very compact to about a mm thickness.


Originally, I planed to use Sodalite for this project, but the intriguing mixture of colours here won out, and fortunately went ahead with this one.


As always, still room to improve, but no more time before the deat-line, so this will have to do.

Thanks for looking, Kurt
