Belle has been a scrimshander since 1975, a few years after her husband began creating his own handcrafted knives (see http://www.oxforge.com/). Working on both pre-embargo elephant ivory and mammoth ivory, Belle creates one of a kind artwork and jewelry by hand. Her work is finely detailed and priced competitively. Hailing from Florida, her work can be seen at http://www.scrimshawworks.com/index.htm.
Update 2013-11-15 Belle has just finished a display piece with a Viking warrior on a wood base. More information on the exact materials soon. It is easy to lose the detail in larger pieces such as these, but Belle has put a lot of time and effort into it and it shows. The stance and the texture of the hair as well as the shadowing makes this a stunning piece. Clicking on the pictures will bring them up to full size.
