Was the ivory already in that shape, or did you cut it especially for this piece?

Well, I didn't cut it to shape, I broke it. It was rectangular but I wanted one end to be jagged. Didn't care how jagged or in what way, so I stuck the piece in the vise out in the barn and attacked the end with a fence tool. You never know how it'll split and break off, but it turned out pretty cool!
