personalized yad

Here is the latest version of theYad.  This was difficult to make for two reasons. First of all the pointer of the yad is actually a carved hand.  I carved the hand separately using original formula PMC which is easier to carve, but shrinks a lot more than PMC+.  Then I fired the hand, and then embedded it in PMC+ which is the formula I used for the body of the Yad.

The personalization was then stamped on a thin strip of metal clay and then carefully attached to the Yad.  This version would make a wonderful Bar or Bat Mitzvah gift.
