    Default Flower Inlay in Brazilian rosewood

    My latest inlay, for Len.

    White mother of pearl petals and vine/stalk, which wraps around a natural dark streak in the Brazilian ( which is a bit hard to see in this pic).

    2 pieces of black MOP for the pieces that touch the flower.

    Center of flower is yellow recon stone with orange, and red added with white highlights.

    Engraving with a square tip graver.
