About this piece
Pendant width: 9 cm / 3.5 inches approx
Pendant height: 7.5 cm / 3 inches approx
This is a large statement piece and the perfect gift for those who love to adorn themselves! It is formed from 4 interlocking parts and assembled with soft nylon joints. This gives the jay an inherent movement, like a puppet on strings!
The jay has two attachment points made from eyelets and closed jump rings. It is strung on multiple strands of hemp cord, converging in an adjustable button/loop fastening. This cord can be cut off and replaced by the buyer if desired (split rings or links will be needed to attach a chain).
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.
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.
