Wooden Heart Necklace
This is a wooden heart necklace. It has been cut out of a piece of Cherry wood.
The wood heart pendant measures about 2 inch tall X 1 1/2 inch wide X 1/4 inch thick. Naturally, it is not a square, but that will give you an idea of the size! It also is not going to be 1/4 inch thick all the way across the heart because it is tapered at the edges.
This heart pendant was not stamped out using a machine. It was drawn free-hand, then cut out. If you have ever looked at a beautiful piece of wood, then you will understand how many places you could choose to cut a heart out! So we tried to use a spot that captures some of the remarkable grain that was in this piece of wood! Some of the photos show one side of it, and some show the other. Have fun figuring out which side you want to wear on the outside :>!
We sanded and sanded and sanded some more until it was so smooth! You can imagine that it is not going to be exactly symmetrical, nor is it going to be the same thickness all the way across. This is truly handmade.
After the extensive sanding was done, this heart pendant was given many coats of varnish. That really brings out the beautiful grain. It is interesting how you can hold it one way, then just tilt it a little, and the grain looks completely different!
The twisted satin braid cord for this necklace is about 18 inches long.
