My first attempt at jewelry, a key fob with state of Texas quarter inlaid into it. It is real shiny now, but I am going to test it on my key ring to see how it holds up over time before I make more.

I took a couple of new pictures today. I am really struggling with the final finish. I sprayed it with lacquer and didn't like the outcome so I removed it. I am going to try a wax finish instead.

I started to model a starship in cardboard and after looking at all the angles and curves, I decided to try a Tie Fighter instead.
