Makau Carvings

I have always had an affinity for the Hawaiian hook designs called Makau.  I have been creating some for a while now and these are a few examples.  The hooks are either carved from pearl shell or Bone, I carved them all with a dremmel tool. I lashed and made the rope for the necklaces using waxed nylon cord.  Some of them have a small carved hook clasp as well.
