Wood Jewel Necklaces

The re-used wood jewelry project started when I noticed that there were so many beautiful off-cuts being tossed into the bin to be burned. Of course these pieces were all too small to be made into tables, or benches, but I saw the potential for a second life. 

After some experimenting with all the different species, maple and babinga have become my favorites – so rich in colour, and amazing grains.

These necklace designs are meant to portray the beauty of the wood in the same way precious jewels are displayed – not bad for cut-offs.
