On March 14, 2020, we made the decision to close the doors to our brand new brick and mortar store, as staying home was the only way we knew how to contribute to the situation at hand. We postponed the March 17th Grand Opening of the business we had been building for the last six weeks, as it was clear that it was not the time to encourage people to gather. It was time to do our part, and begin social distancing.
I spent Day 1 freaking out, Day 2 making a plan, and Day 3 making a prototype.
During the last ten years of running my wooden jewelry business, I have saved small scraps of exotic wood, telling myself “these may come in handy some day.” On day two of self isolation, with plenty of time on my hands, it came to me. Now is the time for all of us to do the best we can with what we have.
Running short on the materials that I need to make my primary product line, instead of stressing and shutting down, why not make the best of what we’ve got? Suddenly thankful for my in-home workshop and years of scrap wood, I got to work, standing at the belt sander while my mind raced about what was going on in the world around us.
One thing that struck me was the influence that the pandemic is having on families and loved ones forced to be apart during these times.
Made on Day 17, the pendants for sale in this listing are made of Roman Olivewood, Bloodwood, Yellowheart, Lignum Vitae and Ebony.
...Two ‘friendship’ pieces, because we can’t always be close to those who are important to us, but we are doing this together.
All pieces in this new line are intentionally left rough on the back side, because there is no doubt that the days ahead will be rough for all of us. Together we will make the best of the situation at hand.
If you would like the pendants shipped directly to separate recipients we'd be happy to do that for you; simply leave the second name and address (and any special note you'd like us to include) in the "notes" during checkout.
