I originally cut this for a guitar pick for myself. But then I took it to work and the receptionist decided that she liked it and wanted it but the side had a bit of area that wasn't smooth (the stone, not my work) so I reworked it and took it back to her. She decided it was too thin and that it might break so I made a deal with her to cut another one only thicker. I will also put a bail on it so she can wear it as a pendant. Thanks for looking.

Maybe she's looking for a Goldilocks pendant.

Not to thin, not to thick, not to shinny. Just right.  lol

She is extremely picky. It will be hard to please her although she loves the color.

I like the pick idea Bob. Looks like its good sized so it would be easy to hang on to. I also play guitar and one day made a agate saddle for a old Martin I have. The change was amazing in clarity and sustain. Try it if you have time and patience.

 Cheers,

Kent

My guitars are inexpensive.I wukk gave to check to see if I can even do that. I have heard that the picks are noisy but I still might try it anyway.
