Browsing carved shell jewelry by Shinji Nakaba, I came upon this ring.

LOL, "Kiss the ring" has a new meaning. They show how it's made.

Lots of other interesting rings.

Scrolling through their inventory is fun.

Well, I like the mouse. The other stuff leaves me cold. Used to be the tradition in Japan was to carve netsuke, or purse-holders that slipped through the obi out of ivory, but since that's no longer legal, I guess people who want to carve are resorting to shell. There were lots of risque netsuke as well, but it takes a certain kind of mind to appreciate it, and I don't have it!

I love the accuracy of the work, beautifully done! And you could make an elegant gesture instead of saying "Kiss my ass".

LOL true
