Broken hearts pendant

This was made as a gift for a dear friend of mine. It’s two broken hearts joined where the breaks are.

I came by the lapis (Rus: лазурит) heart pendant while idly browsing a middle-eastern themed gift shop in Hampden, Baltimore. The wooden part I made from rosewood, which was my first carving experiment, so it took a few tries. Finished with oil and polyurethane, then polished (and then polished more and then some more).
