Avocado Seed Sugar Skulls


Camille Stevens, in Houston, TX submitted these skulls. She said, "I hand carve and sell necklace pendants out of avocado seeds, including these sugar skulls."



I like seeing tiny carved objects. Remind me of miniature trinkets from world travels. These look like little shrunken heads. Real shrunken heads are made by drying the skin on a coconut and decreasing the size of the nut until the final desired size is achieved. These carved avocado seeds remind me of Noah's Acorn Skulls. I read on Camille's Facebook Page, that she's collecting avocado seeds and giving discounts in exchange for usable ones. Definitely a good reason to make some guacamole and send her your seeds.

so Cool! I can't believe I have been throwing the seeds out. Well not anymore. I love these!

Wow, what an original idea! I throw so many seeds away. I've begun to realize that art can be made from almost anything. Love that toothless grin, very cool!
