My current work in progress is this small black horse pendant that I’m carving from Bog Oak as a gift of thanks to the person that gave me the wood. It is a truly extraordinary wood to work with and the sheen left by the knife on its surface seems almost jewel like when it shimmers in the sunlight.

think I’ve ever shown you my father’s birthday gift, which is this cool
handcarved Homestuck necklace (yes, it’s the Light symbol ! How cool is
that ?) I really like it, it looks like some ancient magical necklace that will
open doors to another world, which is incidentally the plot of my first book
(He told me to tell you he’s taking commissions if you want something like that
with your classpect on it by the way :p)
No sun so far today, I finished her off under the umbrella listening to the pitter patter of raindrops. Kollrosed and oiled this Kuksa/Alehen is hand carved from Birch using Axe, knife and hook knife, now onto the next one… J
Buttons made from feral pig/wild boar hoof. Got some pig legs from a hunter friend ages ago and finally finished these–so pretty! And, what a coincidence, one of my woolen shirts has just lost a button!
Hand-carved and inscribed wooden hair stick, inspired by the Atlantic woods of Northeastern Brazil. The stick is made of a 17.5 cm (6.88 inches) long salvaged rowan twig, which has been hand carved and sanded until a smooth state. It features 100% cruelty-free feather and dried juniper berries. The piece is also sealed with home-made spruce resin for water resistance and for a magical scent of the Finnish woods.
I managed to squeeze a little creativity over these spoons today. They, along with others, have been sitting in the ‘done’ basket for quite a while now. So this afternoon it was up with the sun umbrella, off with the shirt and up with the trouser legs….

A little video of the Blossom pendant as the separation between some of the small stems and the main branch really doesn’t show up in the photograph.

Imagine Obi and Qui Gon as the Combat Vet and survivalist in the shoe you're watching
Oh my goooooooooooood
Qui-Gon as the combat veteran with a coffee addiction and absolutely no understanding of the word ‘subtle’. He can build a shelter in under an hour and he always screams whenever a fire is lit successfully.
Obi-Wan as the young, bright-eyed wilderness survivalist that “does this because it’s fun” who can create a fire with a tampon and a clipboard and probably kill you with a pair of headphones if he really needed to. He’s never touched an actual gun, but that’s irrelevant when he can come at you with a badass, handcarved SPEAR WITH A SCREWDRIVER JAMMED INTO THE TOP.
