Yew Pendant by Sward Designs
Pendants are of a simple single wooden piece design. Like the earrings, they make use of the natural patterns and colours of the wood, with no paint or dyes.
Hello, my name is Sue. I have been a keen crafts person all my life and discovered the joy of working with wood a few years ago thanks to my brother.
I take my design inspiration from the outdoor environment. Through my background as a plant ecologist, I learned to observe the range of different shapes and forms found in nature, and to appreciate the beauty of natural materials. This is reflected in my work, where I use minimum embellishments to allow the wood to speak for itself.
The fascination to me as an artist is not knowing exactly what a new piece of wood will look like until it is cut or turned on the lathe. Only then will I decide what to create, and once a piece of wood is used up, it cannot ever be replaced with an exact replica, meaning that each new design is fresh.
I hope you like my creations, and appreciate the beauty of natural wood as much as I do.
