I think this may be my favorite! I've been really interested in string art lately, and I thought patterns on wooden tablets with bring a modern twist to them. This shape is called a Cardioid, and has been strung by hand. Though I named it Crescent moon, because that's totally what I see! To make my designs, I meticulously string onto the nails over and over and again until I'm happy with the outcome. This one took a while, but I finally got it to be exactly as I imagined.

This one is a double pattern, Meaning there are TWICE as many nails as my other cardioid design. This makes for a much more detailed design!
The wood has been hand cut and sanded, and the edges have been sanded in a way to give it almost a bevelled look. The tablet is 9.5 inches square, with a sawtooth hanger on the backside.

I am open to custom orders as well, simply include your stain and string choices in "notes to seller" upon checkout. Choices can be seen in photo 2 & 3.

Consider purchasing a set to create a larger installation on your walls.

Thanks for shopping 9 Red!
