These are some of my bone carvings. Making bone carving pendants is fun and I really enjoy the whole process. My opinion is, if we kill and eat animals, we have to use every single part of the animal, to honour it. The Native American had this approach and I try to have the same approach too. This is why I think that it’s right to use cow bones to make little pieces of art, otherwise all the bones would end in the garbage can.
I have learned bone carving from a cool guy from Argentina several years ago and he learned it in New Zealand from the Maoris, which are very famous for their bone carvings. For some of the pendants I use also the technique of pyrography, because I like to draw some patterns on bone too. If you want to order a bone carving pendant, let me know. Just send me an email: email@example.com . Normally the price is around 50 €.
