Western Red Cedar is a beautiful tree, with evergreen flowing branches that grow in abundance on BC’s West Coast. It has been used for centuries by indigenous peoples for many purposes including building dug out canoes and during ceremonies. This top selling necklace was one of the first items created in my ever growing collection of Natuurlijke jewelry, and due to their popularity I have continued to make them for several years. With time comes practice, and over the years I have learned that some trees produce bows that will cast perfectly while others are too dainty to equate success. I have several favourite spots where I collect these bows with each one individually chosen for their texture, thickness and potential to create stunning little gems. This cedar necklace is the smaller of the two available sizes: they are cast in silver and measure about 3 to 4 cms, and are presented on a high quality 18″ sterling silver chain. They evokes thoughts of our magical West Coast forests, exhibit incredible detail and texture, and are wonderfully light to wear.
