Sorry accidentally posted this under my wife's account at first.

Getting ready for Christmas and I am working on making some presents for my Sisters kids 4 girls and a Boy. I finished 3 pairs of earrings last night, I need to make 1 more pair of earrings and figure out something to make for my nephew. But I thought I would share my progress so far.

1 Set

3 Sets

3 Sets Close Up

I tried to keep them kind of primitive cause I like the texture it gives the earrings. If they were all straight cuts I think they would look too clean and boring. Any feedback would be appreciated and any suggestions for my nephew  Smiley

So cute! How do you make the heart part? Or is it all carved?

How old is your nephew?

It is all carved, I cut out the squares then I removed (shaved down) the coconut around the heart leaving the hearts raised up, then I sanded and polished the hearts. My nieces are 10 , 8, 6, and 4 and my nephew is 2.

So I finished a necklace for my little sister. It is also made of coconut and has jasper beads.

Those are just too cool! I've never seen anything made with coconut before.
