This is a collection of the pendants I have made with American Hornbeam wood. I like to use this wood for my walking sticks also. These pendants are just a slice of the stick. What I found interesting about them are the crazy shapes. All of these were taken from the same stick which further shows how crazy it can be. Very natural looking pendants. Hope you like, if you do feel free to leave comments or questions! Thanks for looking!

Aye and when my soul shall sally forth
Let it be to the naked north
and into a lone pine desolet
achive its fit and final fate
a pine by artic tempest torn
wind savaged snow scourged and forlorn
a viking trunk a warrior tree
a hostage to dark destany
of iron earth and icy sky that valiantly distains to die
This is the place were I would abide
If trees like men had souls inside! Robert Service ; Dark Pine

Now I’m not one for jewlery but I would wear something like this

I cut a tree of suitable diameter, usually around an inch or so, and dry it. In the summer with a dehumidifier in my shop it seems to take about 3 months for a 6 foot stick. Then I just put them on the electric miter saw to cut thin slices, using a fine tooth blade so I don’t have to sand as much. Then I lightly sand whatever saw marks there are, drill the hole, oil them up and make the cord. :)
