Absolutely lovely :bravo:

Do you cut the MOP frames yourself or can you buy them from somewhere?

Very classy. It looks are tough you are cutting out the sqaure with a jewlers saw and then finishing with a file? fun and fine work to do once in a while I think.

Well , thank you .
I dunno . But I have never seen one for sale . The pearl itself in that size is rather expensive , a deterent factor .
Yes I cut them myself .

Good morning!

You find lovely and not too expensive ones at cedros dot org. They have a wide range of dimensions and the pieces are very accurately cut...

Warm regards,

Tobias Braun
