Our products are not machine produced, but exclusively carved by hand, one at the time.

Every step of the process of transforming a small piece of reclaimed wood into a piece of wearable art - cutting, carving, sanding, polishing and lacquering - is done by him and him alone. The richness of the colors, and the intricate patterns of the exotic woods that he works with are amazing! The pendants he hand-carves try to accentuate and complement the natural beauty of each type of wood. No two pendants are identical, each one unique and one of a kind.

The high quality reclaimed timber he is using to create our wood jewelry comes from otherwise discarded small pieces, left behind by the musical instruments and deluxe furniture outlining process.

Despite Nicoleta’s severe disability caused by MS, she enjoys photographing inspiring images while traveling. You can see some of her favorite shots, available for sale as digital downloads in our shop.
