Fabulous Friday -- The Amber Hedgehog

My husband decided to try his hand at carving amber.

The following hedgehog is his first creation and I think it is fabulous.

The eyes are from the stones in an earring he found a few years ago and could be glass, quartz, or rhinestone.
My photo does not do the eyes justice.
The stones make the hedgehog look positively evil.
That, too, is fabulous.

Fantastic! Excellent job. I can't believe it's a first effort.

Thanks, VL. I'll see that he reads this.

Wow! Is he going to do this as a hobby business? If that's his first effort, he's good enough to do so.

This is MOST wonderful. He's a natural.

Messymimi and Hilary, thanks.

That's marvelous. I didn't know you could carve amber. In the photo, the eyes make the hedgehog look confused, which is probably a first step towards evil.

Mary Anne, thanks. The poor thing does look confused.
