Matching a Piece of Missing Branch Coral

@Jason, Would I be correct in thinking it would be near impossible to match the missing coral leg on this piece? Which I’m considering bidding on.

no, I think you would be able to find a match to that. it is branch coral and pretty easy to find.

Curious, can a larger piece of coral be shaped to that shape?

Yes, but we usually find a piece of branch coral that is close and then modify it.

a piece like this is to expensive to cut up

Thanks Jason. That’s a nice looking pendant, AC. Good luck if you decide to bid.

I am going to pass, it was $225 yesterday, about to hit $500 now, but still 55 mins. left if anyone else is intrested.

It went for $570. It’s the leanest part of the year for me or I would have tried harder. I grabbed a copy of the picture and signature because the link will not work eventually. It would have been a good mach to my other Esther Wood Kachina necklace. They didn’t seem to recognize the signature.
