A few months ago, I got some heart wood remnants from my dad’s shop. (Yay for having a crafty-Dad!) and I’ve been working on creating jewelry pieces out of them. These below and a few others are all on Atla’s Etsy page. They are all cut, shaped, and sanded by hand. They are finished with a couple coats of poly only, no stain because the color and grain on these pieces is gorgeous all by itself. As Bey would say; “dey woke up like dis”.
I added a rose-gold colored metal piece to this one and it hangs on a long antique brass chain.
This beauty is joined by a howlite turquoise square bead and hangs on a weathered leather cord.
This little guy was a bit lighter in color, so I thought the stainless accessories complimented it nicely.
The grain and color on these two was so pretty, they didn’t get any additional treatment. You might say they stayed “single ladies“… (See what I did there? Yep, full circle to close with another Bey reference. I don’t just make things with my hands, folks!)
