Thanks for the compliment Creative Chimp.

A local surf shop has started to stock some of my pendants, here are the first ones that I made for them. Sorry about the picture quality.

Here are some before I lashed them.


Everything lashed and ready to roll. I also braid the necklaces by hand which takes a while.






I made everything from a nice selection of materials. The surfboards are Brazilian rosewood. There is some Mammoth ivory and mammoth fossilized bone, beef bone, coconut and maple.

Hey guys, been over a year since I posted on here. Hope everyone is doing well.

I haven't had anytime time to carve that much due to work but I just got a new job that gives me a schedule of 20 days on/ 10 days off. I dont have that much space to carve in my current place but I will be moving to a new house in a few months and that has a nice barn that will be turned into a kick ass workshop...

I will post a few pics of little things I have completed!

Here are a few that I have done since last on.

This makau is made from fossilized stellars sea cow rib bone.



A manaia with polynesian tatau design


This one I really like the way it turned out. I used India ink and smeared it on the surface and then sanded it back to the bone. The ink went into the pores of the bone and gave it this marbled look.

Thanks guys. Can't wait to move to a new place where I will have space to carve. One of the first things on the list will be a huge tiki with my mailbox in his mouth or something like that! May as well dream big!

You need to put a big tiki on the side of the helicopter.
