This pendant is a study of a couple of our favorite wood grain patterns. Ziricote on the left and Snakewood on the right. The Ziricote, while dark in color, has a fantastic whirly swirly pattern to it, and the Snakewood looks like (yup, you guessed it) snakeskin. Snakewood is an extremely hard wood that cracks very easily (even at our scale of woodworking). This piece is blemish free and stunning! The two are bisected by two strips of aluminum and a piece of Ebony. The piece has been hand carved with a subtle curve horizontally to contrast the rigidity of the vertical aluminum stripes. The pendant is backed with a piece of White Oak, which provides a lovely contrast and additional stability. It is strung on four strands of black leather, fully adjustable from 26" at its longest, to whatever length you choose.

The pendant measures approximately 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 1/2" or 6 1/2 cm x 4 cm x 1 cm.


Our finishing process starts with several stages of sanding. We then apply tung oil to each piece. This brings out the grain and color of the wood and helps protect the piece from moisture and wear. When the tung oil is dry, the piece is sanded again. It’s then buffed on a buffing wheel. The piece is then waxed with a microcrystalline wax to protect this finish. We wax each piece several times, hand buffing it between each application.

Should your piece show signs of wear, buffing with an old t-shirt or other soft cloth should bring back the shiny glow it started with!
