14 karat pink gold-mounted viola bow inspired by Pajeot

This bow won a certificate of merit at the 2004 VSA Competition.

This bow's stick is made of amorette or unfigured snakewood.  As pernambuco becomes more scarce, I turned to the historical precedence of the old French makers using amorette as a substitute.
