It was Marian's (my friend's wife) birthday on Sunday just passed. I decided to create a miniature for her as a gift.

It was quite a challenge due to the small size ... about 4 inches round. It required me to make some special tooling to achieve both the initial shaping of the inside and also the final finishing.

The final result was quite striking and it's evident that a full size version would be well worthwhile.
