Elm Butterflies Pendant

395.00
  • One-off piece of wearable art.

  • Signed on the reverse.

  • Carved entirely by hand in English Elm.

  • Responsibly foraged, wind fallen wood.

  • Height: 6.5cm (2.5in).

  • Width: 5cm (2in).

The design for this piece was inspired by the Elm burl from which it is carved. The butterflies are positioned and carved to use the natural knots within the wood as their wing markings.

Individually designed and hand carved entirely by knife, the pendant is a unique piece of jewellery; a one off piece of art, signed by Giles Newman and never to be reproduced. Ideal as a gift for a loved one or as an heirloom item to pass down for generations to come.

The pendant can fit on chains up to 2mm thick (not supplied) via the eyelet attachment points on the reverse. Larger chains can be accommodated using split rings.

The Elm for this necklace was given to me by a retired sculptor and was responsibly sourced from a naturally fallen tree.

After carving the piece has been coated in Tung oil, a natural, deep penetrating nut oil.** 

Because this is a hand carved and finished product made from untreated, un-machined wood, the pendant will not be as smooth or perfectly finished as commercially manufactured wooden items. Knife and axe marks from the carving process will still be visible. As the pendant ages and is worn, it's colour will slowly mellow and change; this is perfectly natural.

** Tung Oil is a natural nut Oil and so may not be suitable for nut allergy sufferers
