Hey y'all, new forum member here. Hopefully this is the right place for these, lmk if not.

I make a lot of jewelery from wood, bone, etc. Thought I'd post some of it here, until I actually get some knives finished.

These are all hand carved, mostly just with my two cherries chip carving knife. My selection of tools is woefully primitive, though I do have a foredom rotary tool on the way that's going to revolutionize my shop.

Let me know what you think, or if you have any questions about materials and whatnot. Thanks guys!

Nice stuff!  That chip-carved guitar is kind of mind-blowing, I've never seen one. B)

Very nice work.  I honestly don't think I've ever seen "random" chip carving before.  Very nice.

Great work.  One thing that a power rotary tool will really help you do is screw up in a hurry, as in there's going to be a learning curve.  You do real good work with those knives.  Just say'n.

Thanks y'all! Yea the random chip carving is fun. You can just follow the grain of the wood or whatever you feel like. Don't have to worry about a pattern.

Also, you can fit lots of hidden images into it.

I want to use some chip carving on some handles, but don't like the idea of cavities that would fill with dirt. Maybe I could fill them with epoxy?
