How this piece came to be...
When working with natural materials, the fait of the finished piece is in its hand. Of course, skill and knowledge play a huge part in success of the outcome but no amount can stop a hairline crack in the wood or centrifugal force throwing a piece off. And that's what happened to this lovely curve of tulip. I had intended for it to be a big chunky bangle, but the tulip has other ideas in mind.
. Avoid wearing in water or heavy rain.
Every 1-2 months treat your wooden accessory with food safe wood oils, such as mineral oil or coconut oil, for the first year. Then roughly once a year.
See the oil as a moisturiser, when the wood seems slightly dry, apply treatment.
If your make up rubs onto your jewellery, simply use a fine grit sand paper, 400 grit or finer. Gently rub down the accessory then treat with food safe wood oil.
