How I started carving avocado stones

Welcome to my shop! I started carving avocado stones in 2014. One day, while preparing an avocado sandwich, I felt reluctant to throw the avocado stone into the bin. I thought that it was too nice an object to throw away. I decided to hold onto the stone so I could take my time thinking about what to do with it. The avocado stone accompanied me as I went about my day, for a few days, inside my coat pocket. When I accidentally scraped the surface of the stone with my nail, a beautiful deep orange pigment surfaced. It occurred to me then to try carving it. I sourced some lino-cutting tools and carved a strange little face into the stone. It was so fun! The carved stone began to dry and after a week it was as hard as wood. I attached some string and it became my first avocado stone pendant.
