Hello all, it's been awhile since I have posted anything but a friend of mine at work asked me to make three necklaces for her three daughters. I then made a knot work pendant for her. I added their birthstone colors to each pendant to make them personalized for each of them. All of these pendants are made from Coconut. Hope you enjoy them.

May



November



July



Knot work, October

Gorgeous! I especially love the July necklace. Do you have a shop that you sell your carvings in?

Fantastic! Did you use any kind of finish on them? They look nicely buffed and a bit shiny!

Those are really great Joe!  I hope your co-worker was pleased with them.  Smiley

And I still love the wire-wrapped Tree of Life on top of the world that you and Danni did for me in the Litha swap.   Cheesy

I do no have a shop yet where I sell anything, Sorry.

Fantastic! Did you use any kind of finish on them? They look nicely buffed and a bit shiny!
The after I finish carving them I start with 800 grit sandpaper and work my way to 2000 grit by the time I am done they are shiny, no finish needed.  Grin

Thank you Ffrogg526, I really liked it too, but it was a joint venture Danni made the Tree I made the World.

I really like the November one too, The July one was the hardest to do because it is the smallest of the group a a really thin part of the coconut, you can't really tell from the pictures. All of these are about the size of a quarter.

These are amazing! I absolutely love the natural feel to them. Where did you get the coconut? I'd love to buy some to work with.

I get my coconut at my local grocery store. Most coconuts are about 99 cents.
1. Cut it open
2. Enjoy a tasty snack of coconut milk and meat
3. Clean it
4. Let it dry
5. Carve it

Thanks for the info about how to do it! I never would of thought about using a coconut as carving material. I can't get over how cool it is.
