About this piece

Pendant width: 7 cm / 2.75 inch approx
Pendant height: 7 cm / 2.75 inches approx

The green man is an ancient symbol, believed by many to represent rebirth and man’s close affinity with nature. It can be found in architectural carvings across the world, both in secular and Ecclesiastical buildings. Many of Britain’s churches contain a green man, though it is possible that this ancient fertility ‘god’ pre-dates Christianity.

This green man is carved from a single piece of lime wood. It has 2 attachment points made from eyelets and closed jump rings. The pendant is strung on multiple strands of waxed cotton cord, converging in an adjustable button/loop fastening.

My necklaces are carved from seasoned lime wood and painted with Bolgers wood dye. Each piece is sealed with Rustins Danish oil for water resistance and durability. These are unique craft items and cannot be mass produced. Sometimes chisel marks will be present on the carvings - these are the marks of the artist and they make each piece truly individual! 

All of my carved pieces come packaged in a cardboard presentation box with a free A5 greetings card.

Make me one!

CARING FOR YOUR PIECE

I finish each piece with Rustins Danish oil for water resistance and durability. However, care should be taken in looking after your piece: avoid exposing your necklace to rainy, wet or damp conditions and store it in a dry place.
