Recent works: to the bone

After the snow has melted away, many many forgotten cow bones occured - something that happens if you have dogs and a big garden...
Instead of throwing them away, I started to create some nice new pieces of art:
Some pendants made of cow bone - just now my favourite kind of work...

The first pendant is inspired by an old carving in Urnes style, but slightly changed.
The second one is one of my own designs - a typical viking-style beast I used a few times on leather so far - this one actually gave me the idea to start again with a bit of bone-carving, simply because I wanted to see this pattern in another medium. This one is my own and won't be sold - sorry!
The Mjölnir-pendant is also self designed - actually while doing it - but I am pretty satisfied with all 3...
