This is an odd shaped Pendant. It is a highly polished piece of Desert Ironwood with Sterling silver findings including a Sterling Silver snap bail. This is a simple but beautiful Pendant. I left the raw weathered edge on the bottom and side of the pendant. It shows the contrast between the coarse exterior and the almost gem-like inner beauty. I applied a hand rubbed tung oil finish to this piece. Either a long or short silver chain (a 24" silver plated chain is available for a small extra charge upon request) of your choice would enhance this beautiful piece.
I do my utmost to bring out the beauty of this exotic wood. I use only the heartwood from the standing but long dead trees that I collect. I cut and file and sand until I am satisfied that the piece is as good and smooth (14 different stages of sanding) as I can get it and then I apply a hand rubbed tung oil finish. Desert Ironwood is truly one of the most beautiful woods in the world with its rich colors and figure of grain. It is one of the hardest and densest woods in the world it’s actually heavier than water and will sink in water.
