This is a pendant made from reclaimed wood and copper wire.
On a family walk in the local bush I picked up a branch that had fallen, probably in a storm, that seemed quite unremarkable on the outside but I saw that the inner wood was quite a deep rusty colour. I thought it had potential as buttons or jewellery, so I brought it home. (The wood branch that the pendant is resting up against in one of the photos, is actually the branch that it came from.)
When I've sawn into the branch I was delighted to see just how gorgeous the wood was and when given a light polish, it really came up beautifully. I chose copper wire as the wrap because it complimented the colour of the wood so well.
I have hand sanded the pendant to bring up the gorgeous character of the deep red hardwood. I've finished off with a light polish with a natural product (orange oil, beeswax, carnauba wax, lanolin). I used a copper wire to cranky wire wrap the pendant and form the chain connector.
Please note that I've put a couple of knots now in the ribbon and unwaxed cord chain - which can be seen in image 2. It helps to sit the pendant against the chest a little better than without.
This is a handmade pendant and, as such, is one of a kind and completely unique. You will not find another natural wood necklace out there exactly like this one. Please review the pictures as these form a part of the description. The image shows the actual pendant necklace you will be receiving. If you would like more images, just convo me and I'll send them along. The colour may be slightly different to what you're seeing on your screen but I've taken the photos in daylight to give you the best representation possible.
