Benzart,

I love your pendants. Are there certain set styles that you like to make, or are they off the top of you head. Please send me a link so I can order one. It would be great having a piece of your art adorning the walls of my house.

Thank you,
Will

Ben,

Thats totally killer!!!!!!!!

One of these upcoming months I should get in line.

Want to trade something? Maybe a 5x7 frame for a 3" pendant? I will probably not get to it for at least 2 months

Let me know

fantastic as usual Ben...you have a
wonderful way of putting a very difficult
decision before me...what should I order
when I reach the top of your list? I
still don't know...but I am hopeful that
I will have to make a decision pretty
soon.

Thanks guys, It's nice to hear kind words about your work, no matter what level you are on.

Spermey, you are welcone tho you may be a bit prejudiced, I'll take it.

Mr Dale, he is one of my favorites too. Even though he is standing there straight with no movement, he has something on his mind, like "GIMME ME BACK MY ICECREAM WAAAA"

And MonkeyMan you know you are right, we need to talk about a trade. I'll do you a frame and you do me a pendant, Ha. Truely, Thanks.

And KAHAKA, I was thinking of you when I gave him that expression (not really)on his face!
Really glad you like him too

Congatiki, yes you had better get those gears workin and figuring out what you will be wanting when your time comes. This guy will go to someone on my list, just don't know who yet. One of you will want it for your choice.

Thantos, I think you are pretty grown up already and it won't take you too many more years to catch up and then I'll be buying tikis from you.
Thanks everyone for the props and support . He will be done soon

I don't know where I am on your list, but if it's up for grabs, I'm raising my hand!

Anyone else ahead of me on the list gets priority for sure, but definitely keep me in mind if nobody else steps up.

That is one beautiful Lono carving!

A-A

Gee Ben, I'm speechless! Lono is amazing from the top of his head dress, to the detail in the mouth, to the 6-pack abs. You are the king, bar none.

Ben, great facial expression, and the detail is impeccable! I can't wait to see him finished. By the way - cool sandals you have!

Thanks Aaron, I'll have to go over the list to see whos next that wants it. You have first dibbs after that.
Finkdaddy, don't go losing your tongue over a little piece of wood, but thanks. I'm doing these for you to learn by , so it's your fault. You young guys are finally giving me some good competition...
Sam, you weren't supposed to see those leather thongs. Very comfortable. This Lono is somehow demanding a lot of detail. I hadn't planned to get this involved with him but he just won't take any quick detail. he's talking to me
