[Looking4] Carver for custom marble pendant


#1

Hello Everybody

A friend of mine just returned from Turkey where she picked up a
small marble rock that she would like to have carved into a pendant
as a souvenir of her trip.

It’s an irregular shape, and she says that the longest edge is about
2 inches.

Here’s a photo of it:

Are there any Orchidians out there who might be able to work with
her on this, or, does anybody have a recommendation I can give her?

Thanks so much!

That depends on what you mean in terms of “carved”? Do you mean
shaped and polished into a cabochon? Do you mean shaped and drilled
and polished so it can be strung on something? Or do you mean carved
in the shape of the Venus de Milo?

I am capable of shaping, drilling, and polishing just about any kind
of stone. I shy away from intricate carvings or artistic renderings
in stone.
