About this piece

Pendant width: 2.5 cm / 1 inch approx
Pendant height: 8 cm / 3 inches approx

Herons are the wise old sage of the bird world, like gatekeepers silently watching the changing currents. To wear one is a symbol of wisdom, patience and solitary reflection.

This heron is carved from a single piece of lime wood. It has 3 attachment points on either side 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 and acrylic paint. Each piece is sealed with Rustins Danish oil for water resistance and durability. These are unique craft items and cannot be mass produced. Sometimes subtle 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.

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.


I will require up to 6-8 weeks turnaround time to create a new custom order. However I will always endeavour to complete a commission sooner if I am able to.
