Material & Makers Notes
This necklace is carefully made by hand, by individually hand carving each bead and sanding it to a smooth finish. The beads are then strung, dyed and cleaned to a smooth consistent finish. A lot of work and skill goes into making these pieces all made from sustainable plantation timber by Earthworks in the Philippines.
This piece is 100% handmade in Cebu, Philippines by a family-owned workshop called Earthworks who have collaborated with ELK since 2004. Crafted from sustainable plantation timber, each bead is hand cut, shaped, dyed and then polished with a natural wax-based product and the finished piece are extremely light.
