This is a pendant made from reclaimed wood, reclaimed vintage beads and copper wire. Paired with a beige cream suede cord with fisherman's knots for ease of length adjustment.
Cut from the same branch as another pendant and some buttons I have on offer in the shop, the wood is a gorgeous red gum hardwood. It's a very chunky cut, over 1 cm in width and I've drilled two holes into it and then threaded through the copper wire. I've twisted the copper wire to form a pendant loop to attach to a necklace. To the wire I've threaded reclaimed beads which I have had for quite some years, waiting for just that right project. And this was it!
The beads are not tied or glued to the wire and will move freely. The wire isn't glued to the wood either. But the structure of the wood and how the wired is threaded means that it won't come apart.
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've taken the photos to be quite bright so you can see the detail character and flaws in the wood. In natural light, it is a little more subtle.
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.
