Long Purpleheart Tassel Necklace
As its namesake states the heartwood of Purpleheart is a purplish brown that, upon exposure to UV light becomes a deeper eggplant purple. Eventually, UV light will turn the wood to a rich brown with purple undertones.
Hand turned 3 1/4" Purpleheart spindle with a 5 1/4" grey horse hair tassel on a 30" copper chain.
All necklaces are one of a kind so please read the descriptions of the necklaces carefully when ordering as tassel and chain length may vary.
Care for your necklace is simple, if hair becomes unruly hold spindle in palm of hand and firmly grasp hair where it meets wood. With a wide tooth comb start at bottom of tassel and work your way up. When done combing pluck any extra crazy hairs by wrapping around finger and yanking as close to wood as possible. If wood loses luster simply buff with walnut oil (commonly used on wood cutting boards and easily purchased where kitchen items are sold)
