    Okay I tried some odd nut from a tree in Australia, stabilized then set in a mold and poured colored Alumilite into the seed holes and around the perimeter.

    I may have really gone overboard on the color so what do you think?

    The material is a Banksia Seed Pod

    Stuff is fragile before stabilizing so only two handles from one seed pod. Next will have glow in the dark powder mixed in with the colours.

    Might use a couple of small pieces as inserts in another handle since it has a nice pattern when polished.

    I'm a bit of a traditionalist myself, but I love seeing people in the group pushing boundaries and expirementing with new materials and designs. That's the 'artistic' side of the hobby that I struggle with. It's people like you that give people like me something to copy.

    Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    Cheers.
