Petrified Wood Necklace
Petrified wood literally means wood turned to stone. It’s the name given to fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. This piece was cut by my favourite stone cutter, Gary Wilson. The pendant has a hammered texture, which causes the imperfect marks on the back. A satin finish and pretty patina highlight the stone. The hallmark is upside down because I changed the orientation of it, I thought it looked better. The pendant is 3.5 inches long including the bail. It’s hung on a braided leather necklace adjustable between 17.5 and 18.5 inches. The pendant can be removed for a variety of looks.
