Gareth carving the cameo of Grace Kelly

gareth eckley cameo carvingGareth is using diamond tools to carve the Award winning gemstone portrait of Grace Kelly. The portrait was carved into a layered agate with three layers – black/white/black. This photo shows my carving set-up from 2007, when I mainly used a flexible micro-motor. I now mainly use the more traditional gem carving lathe that is fixed to my workbench.
