    A beautiful piece! It's your design, it looks very good. Today is a bit difficult to think of a new design that was not like anything that anyone has produced.

    This one is very beautiful. The white acrylic sheet on top is a great idea that looks like dental material like ivory.<br>The fang hook will give a nice support to the last two fingers.
