I carved a smooth flat pebble shape from cherry wood and then painted it with a dragonfly dancing across a lake of waterlilies. The plants I’ve included around the edge make a pleasing border to the pendant and include some water forget me nots. I’ve highlighted some areas with touches of iridescence, which catch the light as the wearer moves. Several coats of matt varnish protect it. I’ve chosen threads in the same colours as the greens and blues in the pendant and made a kumihimo cord to suspend it. I make my kumihimo cords on a traditional wooden Japanese marudai – which is a stand that uses weighted bobbins to create patterned braids.
The necklace cord is 18 inches long and is finished with plated metal cord ends. The wood pendant is 1.75 inches high. The reverse of the pendant bears my little monogram.
I’ve added those little personal touches to the packaging that makes receiving hand crafted jewellery such a special treat. The box is lined with mulberry paper and the lid is decorated with pretty washi tape. I’ll send it promptly by first class post.
