Artist Carves Avocado Pits Into Magical Forest Creatures

By: Anuradha 

People can find beauty in most uncommon places. A thrown away dish can turn into a beautiful pot and some shattered glasses might be worn as expensive ornaments by some. All that you have to do is to give it a thought and your whole life would be changed into a newer dimension.

We are talking about the thrown away, uncommon objects because Jan Campbell has found beauty in something that most of us hardly pay any attention and she has proved that you can change your destiny if you change the way that you think and look at things.

Jan is another ordinary woman and one day while she was preparing an avocado for lunch, she was struck by the beauty of the pit inside. Most of do not even consider whether avocados are having a pit or not and that is why we constantly remind you guys to change the way that you think and look at things.

However, after weeks of pondering, Jan was struck by the idea that she can change the pit into something beautiful. She carved away its layers until some beautiful creation appeared and the final result is just awesome.

Ever since that day, Jan has been turning avocado pits into tiny, intricately detailed figures inspired by Celtic folklore. She carves forest spirits, ancient goddesses and in her collection, there are also mushrooms and some slight things. All these miniatures can be worn as pendants and Jan says that they provide the holder with a unique sense of true companionship.

So, scroll down to see some of the beautiful creations made by her and just keep in your mind that you can also win the world if you look at things in a different perception!
