The whale is made from a limited supply of mahogany inherited from my late grandfather, creating an important sentimental connection as the beautiful wood is in limited supply. The piece is hand cut and painted, and the cord is made using a downsized version of a technique originally used to make fishing rope. The yarn itself is hardwearing 4ply Cannele yarn.
Two variations are available either two strands of yarn (£65) or handmade rope (£75) finished off with a handmade and completly unique bead. Colour choice of whale and yarn is avaliable when you place your order. You will receive your handmade whale in a keepsake box. Please let me know which colour you would like your whale to be I tend to work in blue hues but can discuss other options. The yarn comes in green, pale blue, yellow and orange (photo above). I also have a small selection of different colours available too.
Each piece I make to order as I have a limited supply of mahogany wood. Please allow a week for turn around.
The whale design is the result of a series studying the British coast, including jewellery inspired by fish, driftwood and found seaside objects. These majestic animals were respected by the fishing communities that relied on them, and the jewellery reflects this respect for nature.
