This is a pendant I made from a nice piece of cherry burl. I love the contrasting sapwood streak through this piece. I also do love the subtle swirls of this burl. It’s nice to work and to look at. I also made the adjustable leather cord that is on it. I actually still have this piece for sale so if anyone is interested let me know. Thanks for looking! Comments always appreciated. :)

I think these are kinda cool. Do you make a lot of them for sale or was this an idle hands type of job? How much are you asking?

Nice clean presentation and shape, rather than something complex or elaborate = letting that beautiful piece of wood do the talking. Nice work! Sort of reminds me of cork. Welcome to LumberJocks!

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone! You guys are too kind :) .

ChrisN, This is what I normally make when I work in the shop. I started out trying to make a few knives and then decided to use the offcuts for necklaces and it just went from there. I make a pretty good number of them too. They sell better than knives and more frequently. haha. Plus all my friends saw me with one and then had to have some for them and everyone they know. haha. This one is about $18. Here is a link to my site if your interested. http://www.etsy.com/listing/78547425/handmade-cherry-burl-wood-pendant-with

Dusty56, I get my leather from a shop on etsy. Its absolutely beautiful stuff. Supple, soft, and natural looking. Its not just solid brown. It has great color variations in it. Here is the link to it for you → http://www.etsy.com/listing/60210473/greek-leather-cord-round-15mm-natural

Jonathan, Thanks for your comment. I agree completely with you. I prefer to keep the shapes very simple and show off the beauty of the wood. Some people like to make interesting and fun geometric shapes and I like those too but my goal is to show people how great the wood looks.

I love the bottle cap for scale in the photo, that is a great idea.

MrsN, yeah I kept hearing that I should put something in my photos to help with the scale and I started with a quarter but that was boring so then I got more fun with it. haha.
