Fantastic work. That K looks like a LOT of hand work. Outstanding job.

Keep it up.

I also like the shaping you did on the “K”. It looks similar to the traditional fishing hooks the Hawaiians and other islanders made, which are now being made for neckwear instead of fishing.

The keyrings are a smart idea to keep those keys where they belong!

Thanks for all your comments.
I have done some of the Maori style fishhook pendants in rosewood as well. I have been doing the keychains for 27+ years (now as a hobby and a little extra money). People love their names and there are new names popping up every day that aren’t found in the souvenir shops.

Super job. As a note…Souvenir shops don’t market quality products like these items.
