Hand Carved Starfish~ Necklace


I’m so excited to have this Starfish pendant finished! It was my first 3D carving, and was a lot of work to make. I carved little pearls all around it and a shell in the middle. It’s accented with lovely beads in the colors, green blue, brown and purple! TheΒ  starfish itself is in lovely colors of green and teal.

This necklace is available in our Etsy shop at: stinnettstudio.etsy.com

Thanks for looking!


New Year, New Hand Carved Necklaces! 2016



Here are my latest necklaces! I really enjoyed making these whimsical pieces.Β  In order to create their rustic, antiqued look, I had my dad wire brush them for me. I really like how the wood grain pops out. I then painted them and put a clear finish. I recently bought some beautiful glass beads on sale and was able to add them to some of my necklaces. The winter light doesn’t seem to be doing my pendants justice. The purple is much more vivid in real life on my butterfly. but oh well… πŸ˜‰

Hand Carved Wooden Sea Turtle Necklace


This is a Hand carved, sea turtle necklace made by my mom. I love the way she painted him, he looks like he’s made out of stone! It makes a great choker necklace by using the cinch bead to resize.

These pictured above are made for an iPhone, but I’ve made about the same amount for the smaller flip phone types. I would be making more, but my arm started hurting and I had to give it a break. 😦 As soon as my arm recoups I hope to make some more and add them to our shop! πŸ˜‰
