Thanks Ben! My little boy wants me to do a finger for him, so I may do one that's different than this. He wants me to do one that looks like his finger... Hey tikilizard, I may try to do a cauliflower ear carving in the near future. I have to keep it edgy you know!

My little boy who's 5 wanted me to carve a finger pendant for him, so here it is. I carved it from a tree twig, and used the natural bend of the twig to represent the bend of the knuckle. It's more of a petite finger than the last one, but hopefully just as creepy. Thanks for looking!

Nice Sam. Does it need feathers to qualify as a "bird"?

Thanks so much Kilted Tiki and Gman!

Hey Kilted Tiki, there are no finger prints, but just the double creases where the finger bends. Finger prints are a possibility though!

Hey GMAN - no, this one doesn't need the feathers to be a bird. Just position finger upright with nail side facing outward, and it is effectively utilized as bird.

a severed finger
but more petite..
something a child would want to wear!


Rockin with this mini-series!
the cauliflower ear one is a MUST-TO-DO!
only a true artist would examine the branch and find the slight bend...

Can feel the happiness in your voice when you write!
that's what it's all about!

Thanks so much for the comps on this, Ken, surfintiki, Ben, laojia and Robb!

Hey Ken, yes, what healthy child wouldn't want a hardened severed human finger to show his friends? I can't wait until he starts school and has show-n-tell!

Surfintiki, thanks again for the kind words!

Hey Ben- Thanks much for the kind words and advice. I do remember those pics of yours with the tiki "bites" on your finger!

Hey Iaojia- I appreciate the comp! Creepy is cool I always say!

Hey Robb, I guess a severed ear should be next right?

Very cool, nice details! I think it would be cool if you ever made another one to make it look like a bone where you put the cord through.

Sam are you giving us the finger again.....know what have you been told about that.... Nice work. He should have cleaned the dirt out from under his nails. Looks creepy real. Now how many can you make before Halloween?
