"Most women always admire their hair; the beautiful take care and time with their appearance. Each and every time she goes to the mirror, she admires her hair before doing anything else."

Jonathan achieves the pattern of the dress with a chisel and chasing hammer, and the hair with a tungsten carbide chisel held at an angle.

This unusual stone is a hard variety of serpentine that was a particular favourite of Brighton Sango's.
