A Moon and Stars Ring

I carved this moon face from a turquoise cab that I bought. It looks like Iranian turquoise. The dealer got it in India.

I thought it would be nice for a blue moon. I carved the face using diamond bits that I cadged off the dentist, and polished it with diamond gel on felt buffs and bamboo points. I carved the ring in wax and had it cast.

More carved faces here.
