Short Doulos Phos Tassel Necklace with Brown Hair
Although normally this South American wood has a natural green tone to it over a long period of time will start to turn a rich medium brown. This piece of Lignum Vitae has already turned brown with age as it was salvaged off of a 100 year old ship called the Doulos Phos. Please note that because of its age and life as a ship there are some small cracks that are visible but they do not compromise the integrity of the necklace.
Hand turned 2" Lignum Vitae spindle with a 3 1/4" brown horse hair tassel on a 26" 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)
