Custom pet portrait progress

I am currently working on a custom pet portrait for a pair of customers I met at the Ann Arbor show last year.  I decided (with their permission) to do a progress album on Facebook of their piece.  I have been taking photos of each stage of the piece, from the original photo they gave me, my sketches, and the cutting of the piece.  I am about 2/3 of the way done with the cutting now, and will continue to post pictures through the finished piece.

Large leopard jasper rosary finished

I loved the colors of these beads enough that I decided to break down and make another large bead rosary.  Leopard jasper is an incredibly striking stone with reddish browns, chocolate colors, tans, golden yellows, grays,and black blending in spotted patterns..

Finished Saluki papercutting, final edition

Just finished cutting this guy this afternoon.  This was a fairly recent pattern, and I am already on the final edition- 2/2!  Have to find a new Saluki as a model I guess!
