Apples and Pears - Ruby Tuesday


A plate of fruits---they're pretty but not edible. These decorative fruits are made of inlaid shells...abalone, pen shell and the white pear was inlaid with a shell locally known as cabebe. The red chopsticks and square dish are functional.:P

That fruit is really lovely. It must feel so delicate made out of shells. Very cool plate too, and set off nicely by the red chopsticks.

These are absolutely gorgeous!
I'm thinking this post will be the most elegant ruby post I see this week - I love it!

These fruits are not edible, but would make a great centerpiece. The chopsticks look too nice and stylish to actually use. But the artistry is unmistakable!
