Wildlife Series depicts different animal species in their natural environment. Each piece features a single creature during its daily or nightly routine.
The pendants are handmade and designed in a minimalist style so that most attention is focused at the main subject of the design – the animal.
The wood of choice for this series is rosewood. It is a hard exotic species of wood. One of the reasons for its hardness are very small wood pores. This makes it ideal for carving tiny details, because its hardness allows for more control during carving since the wood is removed at a slower pace.
The string is made from kangaroo leather, which is one of the strongest leathers available. Kangaroo leather is lighter and much stronger in comparison to cowhide or goatskin.
Stainless steel has high corrosion resistance compared to other non-precious metals often used in jewelry. Its superior strength and modern appearance make it an excellent choice for jewelry segments that are subjected to wear.
*Since wood is a natural material there is a slight variation in texture and color between individual pieces. You can see an example of this variation in the gallery. Please not that your item may slightly differ in color and texture from the one in the picture.
