To the pits! Avocados, that is.

I made a new avocado pendant for Etsy. I enjoy making these, but I don't think I've made a real post about them, so here we go. Basically what I do is I take avocado seed/pit and while the seed is still soft, I carve into them with a nice sharp knife. As the seed dries, it becomes a much smaller, much harder wood seed, which I can then put an eyelet through. They make nice pendants, which I then varnish and sell on Etsy.

So here's photos of one. This one I decided to really try to make the carvings as deep as I could, the effect was really nice. I plan on trying this again once I get another few avocados!
