I made this pendant for my neighbor’s granddaughter who was visiting in the park. It is a memento of the desert.
It is made from ironwood and has no finish on it. It is just buffed and waxed. The color came out good without the Danish oil this time.

Cheers, Jim

I remember when Norm Abram built this beautiful hutch from misquite and added touchs made from iron wood.
It’s such a beautiful wood as is your pendant.
It’s nice how you can take such a piece of wood that some would throw into the scrap bin and turn it into something of value.

Very nice.

Unless you have made pendants—you have no idea of how much work goes imnto them!

Ironwood is also another experience by itself! Tests tools, and patience too.

Great job!

Looks great as is. What did you string it on Jim? Looks more like small cable that string.

Very cool pendant, I have been wondering what to do with my iron wood chunk. I’m sure you made a girl very happy.

Interesting piece of wood with a even better story. Thinking she will cherish this for years to come.
