Very nice pieces, I ordered the gold and white figured MOP and loved em both!
Really nice product. Workable size pieces. Got here fast.
Very high quality materials, orders arrive in a timely fashion. Ordered from company and always happy with service and materials
Very nice pieces to pick from and as stated enough to work with, Bar fret markers finished and have more to do other things with
The green abalone shell that I ordered was excellent. The slabs looked great! I have done business with StewMac for years and they are some of the best people to do business with!
While searching for a source of abalone pearl, by far the most popular material for my line of art ornaments, I found the Stewart-MacDonald website. I was impressed by their prices, selection, information, and by the positive reviews from customers. My first order arrived promptly and I was very impressed with the quality and coloration of the abalone pearl blanks. I also purchased a selection of black pearl blanks which were also excellent. Two thumbs up for StewMac!
While you can buy a half pound of pearl from Vietnam for the same price as a Stewmac ounce the consistant quality and thickness make it the better value.
Very nice figuring, easy to cut.
The quality of this material is absolutely high grade. Don't think you could buy anything better suited for the job. See how I used it on the head stock of the mandolin in the photo. The flower is MOP dyed red with leather dye.
A lovely & very reliable source of raw material from which to cut replacements for missing or damaged inlays on vintage instruments - such restoration is a significant part of my business.
It's very even in thickness, cuts beautifully and enables me to make great-looking inlays in a fraction of the time it would take to cut them from raw shell.
Worth every penny!
