This is a champagne Topaz that I faceted the top of and carved and faceted the bottom.
Ditto for this tourmaline.
I have started on a Hidi on how to make a whistle.
About a year ago, I made this whistle for a captain on of those fancy do-daa racing yachts.
Apparently, he needs a whistle to attract the attention of members of the crew because shouting is not loud enough.
Well one year later, I swear, I have virtually forgotten how I made it. There some fine measurements inside it to get the right volume and pitch. I made about six different models before I got it right.
So I decided, before my amnesia takes total control of me, I might as well make a Hidi, so that it is laid down in the digital world.
The Internet never forgets.
