Actually, I heard that once you try a stone pick, you wont want to go back to those flimsy cheap plastic ones. biggrin.gif

So far all I have done are the standard sized picks.
Here's a picture of the same ones, just flipped over.

Thanks guys! happy.gif
I'll put a link here to the Market when I add them.
Here is a pic of a few more I did. The one on the left is fossilized dinosaur dung (Coprolite), and the one on the right is Del Norte Colorado Agate.

ohmy.gif These Arizona Petrified Wood ones blew me away when I was done,
they turned out great! The colors and the honey comb patterns in them are very cool, and If you hold them up to the light you can see the pattern through them.
Very strong picks and from what Im hearing, the stone picks actually makes them sound better. cool.gif

Im going to be working on more petrified wood ones but way different patterns.
I cant wait to see how they turn out.

These pick's are pretty good, I just tryed one out.
Obviously they're pretty stiff, and from what I've seen I dont think they wear out as fast as a regular plastic pick.

happy.gif They are cool, arent they Geno.
By, "how much to send me one of each?".........are you meaning styles?
This is a different style pick I have been working on.
I put one of the classic (27mm wide x 32mm long)sized picks in the middle I made to show the size of the tear drop (18mm wide x 25mm long) shaped ones.

Most of the picks I have made so far vary in thickness from 1.5mm-3.0mm.
What style/thickness do you prefer to use?
