Two Gourd Bowls - Flying Agate Fish and Purple Glass

I finished these two gourd pieces this week.   The purple on the top one features a piece of handblown glass I bought from a glass blower.  The bottom one has an agate slice with copper on the back.  With those feathers, I think it looks a bit like a fish!   I love the really soft blue leather I used to create the braid at the top.    A spool of that leather was expensive, but worth it!

It's a little hard to tell from views, but the interior of both of these bowls are bright and shiny colors to match the embellishment on the front. Both of these are now listed in my Etsy Shop--
