Carved olivewood heart set with a small garnet cabochon; about two inches wide.

Stained, with hand-rubbed beeswax finish. Side to side hole for cord. The holes around the garnet lead to a common inner chamber.

Incredible smoothness of your carving

I spend a lot of time blending and then use flexible abrasive pads.

we always see such wonderful pics from you ..
but every time i read you carved it out of olive wood i wonder how it smells
(some woods like olive/walnut/pine smell so nice )

Maybe the wood is too old, or maybe I am, but I don't notice much smell from carving the olivewood or teak pieces. The coco bolo piece had a strong smell, hard to describe.

Thank you. :)

At the moment, it's sales booth stock. If it hasn't sold in a week, it will be for sale here.
