Ebony Necklace Navy
Ebony Necklace Navy
STATEMENT PIECES, INSPIRED BY TRAVEL
A contemporary statement necklace, combining ethnic Chinese handicraft techniques with a rare White Ebony wood veneered pendant.
Handmade in London.
We first discovered White Ebony wood whilst backpacking through Laos at a crafts market. There was a handful of bowls laid out on the ground, all made from a wood we had never seen before. We were drawn to the inky black stain that swirled and offset against the pale timber.... nature's ink on wood.
The necklaces colourful rope references ethnic minority jewellery from the Yunnan province in China. Ali found an incredible necklace in a market in 2011 and was inspired to use the same traditional tying method alongside the Asian Ebony. Bound by hand using a waxed cotton cord, the piece sits comfortably on the body and is taken on and off using the Chinese knot and rouleau loop.
There are 3 different types of Ebony pendant you can choose from: Full Ebony Leaf, Half Ebony Leaf and Minimal Ebony Leaf.
This refers to the amount of black coverage in the grain of the wood. Please see the photos for a rough indication of leaf coverage.
Please note that the necklace pictured is not the exact necklace you will be receiving. The patterns in the wood grain varies, making each pendant uniquely different.

Take care of me... I'm handmade!
My wooden parts have been finished but still need some love because they may get damaged.
Please don’t wear me in the shower.
Try not to put cosmetic products on me, I might stain.
