Troy has inlaid pieces of Tiger Eye stone in his art work but never carved an animal out of one. Here is his first carving of Tiger Eye stone of a badger. The stone is hard material to carve and diamond bits and wheels are used to carve. The natural color of the stone give a shimmering effect. Inlaid eyes of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and an offering bundle of Natural Mediterranean Coral, Kingman Turquoise and fine cut Olive shell beads all tied with sinew.
