Short Lignum Vitae Tassel Necklace
This South American wood has a natural green tone to it that first intensifies when exposed to UV light but eventually mellows out and over a long period of time will start to turn a rich medium brown. The grain has the stunning effect of almost looking like a feathered herringbone.
Hand turned 1 1/2" Lignum Vitae spindle with a 3" white 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)
