Black Mother of Pearl Shell Blank
Rectangular black mother of pearl blanks ideal for making your own inlay designs and jewellery pieces. These mother of pearl (nacre) blanks measure 42 x 22 x 1.3mm, making them the ideal size for cutting custom logos, inlay shapes and strips. Their uniform sizing makes them great for both hand cutting and for CNC work.
Our blanks are exceptionally high quality - precise dimensions, uniform thickness and completely flat. We have polished the blanks on one side, with the other side left as its natural cut surface. This thickness of blank is suitable for inlaying into slightly curved surfaces, for example the fingerboards of stringed instruments and guitars where it is desirable to create a radius on the wood.
Black mother of pearl inlay blanks can be carefully cut using a jeweller's saw, with the blank supported on a small piece of wood with a v-shaped notch cut in to it. It is important to extract the dust created from cutting - do not inhale.
Solid mother of pearl inlay material blanks can be cut, carved, shaped and sanded as required, as it is solid material and the incredible patterns run all the way through it. These blanks can be polished using standard wet/dry paper, polishing compounds and buffing wheels. When inlaying into a surface which will itself be shaped, always inlay first, and do any shaping or radiusing of the whole workpiece later.
