Lichenology - Union With Allies Fir Root Necklace
Anyone who has spent time near a Douglas fir can speak to the humility that necessarily comes from being in the company of wise, old beings. May this piece keep you mindful of your place in the world and inspired to protect the integrity of this beautiful place.
This statement necklace is made from a root of a naturally fallen Douglas fir, found in the Cascades in Washington state. The holes on the side are insect bore holes, calling awareness to the many lives that depend on the forest as it stands. The root holds a beautiful rock posy lichen inlay from eastern Washington— another example of mutualism, this time between fungi and algae.
The pendant measures 2.5” tall by 1.5” wide. It is designed to sit low, as an opera style necklace, so hangs from a 28” of quadrupled red waxed linen cord that is secured with a lobster clasp.
All materials are preserved for longevity of wear using non-toxic products. As these are natural materials, please refrain from submerging in water.
