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.

Very cool earrings! I love the wire loops at the top, they really make the piece stand out.

They are very nice, You got them to match really well too, great job. I have to make some kind of jewelry for the wood lathe club I’m in so I might keep something like this in mind.

I looked at the photos before reading the description and thought the design looked Latvian. I remember my grandma having jewelry with a similar style. I guess I almost got it right…
