Nectar

 

  Nectar
This is the most delicate piece I have ever carved.
The effect of the thinness of the wings and the translucent nature of the stone
leads you to believe you are looking at colored crystal and not a carved stone.
I will confess that my heart was in my throat for much of the work.
