Some years ago when I first began creating my "Forest Treasures" range of homewares ... utensils, serving ware, salad servers, muddlers ... I was concerned about the amount of small offcuts of wood I was throwing away. Since I was making an effort to utilise wood from 'eco' sources wherever possible, it made sense to try and find a way of re-using at least some of my own discards.
I was already creating a range of carved bone pendant jewellery which was fairly detailed, so I opted to incorporate some of my wood offcuts into a pendant range.
The wood pendants are minimalist organic shapes reflecting shield and tooth forms. Made from local rainforest timbers, the style and colours appeal to both male and female wearers.
They are available in a range of sizes including some quite large shield shapes which make a powerful statement. The hangings are mostly cotton braid.
The wood pendant range is currently available exclusively from The Snake House at Cape Tribulation, Australia.
