Thanks YM. That hammerhead has surprised me how popular its been, some of the pieces I make like the little dugong, hammerhead, simple abstract shapes for necklaces and earrings dont really make it to the website or my facebook page, the hammerhead was one of those but it got more attention then blue jade flower I made. Just goes to show you never know what people will like. The hammerhead is quite small and was a lesson that going small doesnt always mean it will be easier and quicker! Ive got a large block of blue nephrite from canada and I plan to carve a much larger hammerhead from it. Skills are paying some of the bills :)

"- Dremel or Ozito (with flex shaft makes it easier)" my advise, dont waste you time and money on that rubbish! foredom is the only tool you want. if you cant afford one, save till you can. The dremel (crappest name in flexshafts) bit's are ok though, but NOT the "tool" itself. great work, pleasure to look at. thanks =)

Dremel is fine for starters, they are cheap and will last for long enough till one saves for a foredom. I use a foredom micromotor and a fordom flexshaft.

Im making another green python now, will be larger. Logan river? In SEQ? You should take a photo! They are only recorded as being found in the iron range/mcIllwraith range area if Cape york and then in PNG, it would be quite significant if they were found there as well! Thanks for the comments :)
