This was one of the first pendants I made. It was from a very nice pen blank of Amboyna Burl with a fantastic streak of sapwood in it. I loved the deep reds and swirls of this one. I had not started making leather cords for my pendants yet so this one just had a simple cotton cord but its got a lot of character. Thanks for looking!

I’m with Elizabeth: another great piece! Nice and easy, but beautiful. I like your hole placement on this one for the leather lanyard.
