Holiday is over, so I'm slowly easing myself back into a sort of routine.

First up, something I collected in Austria and think might be marble.

The second is Labradorite, that was gifted to me in Austria after we narrowly missed actually meeting up. Never worked anything with clear base, so this is a completely new material to me.


I'm not too happy with the Labradorite yet. I see crooked lines and a few spots that I could not get rid of in the pictures. At hand it looks fine, .... but......

Up next, Calcite that I bought in Salzburg and want to carve in memory of the trip


And another Labradorite with a little darker base-colour. Seeing a bird in there.

These are lovely. Still learning how to find the blue in labradorite. Certainly an art to it.
