This stunning wood bead necklace is a real showpiece, while tastefully understated as made from beautiful unvarnished wood beads.
This necklace is crafted by Indonesian artisans using a variety of local and sustainable woods such as mango and coco.
Each bead is carefully threaded and knotted using natural plant based black cords.
This necklace feels lovely to wear with its array of smooth and tactile wood beads that show the natural grain of each piece.
This necklace would look stunning against a day wear wardrobe of natural cotton, linen or wool but works well as a funky unique evening piece.
Length: 57 cm
Origins: Made in Indonesia using locally sourced sustainable second hand woods, or wood off-cuts.
The fair trade jewellery and handicrafts bought from Indonesia are all village produced. One village will tend to specialize in a certain craft e.g. some concentrate on silver, others bead work, others wood carving or bamboo work.
The communities are continually producing new designs to add to their collections.
Our supplier supports the development of their craft by paying a fair price to enable the artisans to source new materials and tools. He personally visits these small family businesses and maintains regular contact.
