My beautiful jigsaw puzzle!

Remember me mentioning that a friend had made a puzzle for me, laser-etched in black lucite? Well now it can be shown:

It’s even prettier in person. The black parts are all shiny.

The best part, though, is that the puzzle contains numerous custom-shaped pieces. My initials:

Musical instruments:

Crumhorn, drum, violin, lute

And two characters from my old comic series, Amy Unbounded:

That’s Lalo, the original dragon in human form, and Amy herself.

Pretty neat, huh?

Now, I need to make a little legal disclaimer here: this puzzle is not for sale. I did not buy it. It is a one-of-a-kind gift from a friend. He makes and sells all kinds of other interesting puzzles, and you should definitely check them out.

Thanks again, Pavel! It’s really beautiful.

    Rachel, it was my distinct pleasure! I’m so glad you like it. I had *such* a good time making it for you!

    If anyone would like me to create such a custom jigsaw for them, I’d be thrilled to talk terms; this was a lot of fun for me. I can work with photographs or drawings, and vary the size, complexity, and difficulty to match your needs. Cost will, of course, depend a lot on what you want.

    Thanks for posting about it, Rachel!

  5. I’ve seen literally hundreds of jigsaw puzzles but nothing like this.

    You could frame that puzzle as art.

    Someone needs to start making these over in the UK.
