Here's a tip for those who may need a photo, a pattern, of any other reference to check out before carving something. Use your computer and search for whatever object, under this title: (Object) illustration. I entered "Sea Horse Illustration". When you use the word "illustration" you'll get line drawings that are easy to convert to a pattern.
These sea horse earrings are so simple and fast. I started out cutting the profile out of 1/4" thick Basswood. The actual carving was accomplished with a small burr in a rotary tool, and my pocket knife.
When it's necessary to carve more than one of an item, here's a simple way to duplicate the item. It's not a rubber stamp, but dang close. Just make a smear of paint, set the blank to be duplicated in the paint, and use it like a rubber stamp.
