This pair of earrings was handcrafted from spalted Oak. The wood was found on the ground in a local forrest The grain pattern of this wood gives them a really unique look. The main difficulty in this project was finding a piece of the wood that had really good spalting but wasn’t too punky(almost all the log).
The beads are amber coloured glass.
The earrings are finished with 3 coats of hand applied tung oil and a fourth coat of bee’s wax. The Wire was hand formed and epoxied in to the wooden drops.
