*drools a little*
yep you the man
your one of the few folks that can cause me to de-lurk lol
color on that femur is awesome
and your fit and finish is flawless as always

where do you buy your silver?
I'm assuming your buying plate wire and shot?

Thanks.

I usually buy old sterling spoons, forks, scrap etc. I sand cast ingots, do my own milling and drawing with a hand crank rolling mill and draw plate. It saves a little money and I can make whatever size/shape stock I need.

All your work has such a smooth flow Tai, and this one is no exception. You are truly one of the greatest artists I've ever met.
