Boho Beaded Necklace with Leaf Wood Pendant

Sorry, this item has sold.

A sumptuous necklace for autumn. The focus is a wonderful carved wood leaf pendant (6cm tall) which is a warm mahogany brown colour. There are a couple of charms with the pendant to compliment the rest of the mixed media necklace. The charms include a delicate patterned wood bead and a copper coloured freshwater pearl with a unusual seed pod pendant.

The length of the necklace is 21" (53cm) and this is comprised of three separate wire wrapped sections. These are joined with mixed metal charms, copper coloured beading wire and feature various gemstones and beads. The beads include:

Copper coloured freshwater pearls, dyed and painted wood beads, hammered copper discs, mother of pearl iridescent discs, spiral shell beads, terracotta ceramic beads, Swarovski crystals, mother of pearl diamond iridescent brown beads and gemstone nuggets.

It is a wonderful rich mixture of colours, natural textures and shapes with many unusual and intriguing features. I particularly like the seed pod beads and the organic patterns in shades of brown and cream. The spiral shell beads are also great (Goodness knows I love a boho spiral!). Copper and antique gold coloured metal findings run throughout, including the lobster claw clasp.

This necklace has a very artisan-bohemian look perfect for autumn and the festive season. The added sparkle of the Swarovski crystals and iridescent pearls means it can be dressed up beautifully into a real statement accessory.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalised orders

I offer many custom options, particularly in my ceramic pendant range. All the information is included in the listing details, but feel free to contact me with additional info or questions. I will always speak with you first, before making a custom order, to clarify your design and before sending to check you are happy with the outcome. I ask 10 days from confirmation of order in which to make the piece. Shipping times are additional to this 10 days.

I'm always happy to work with you to create something special and unique.

Care instructions

A lot of the components are natural materials so they can be fragile or prone to attack by water or rough handling. To protect your jewellery, please handle it carefully and remove it before bathing/showering, swimming and snoozing. It is also a good idea to avoid getting perfume, make-up or creams on jewellery.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I carefully pack all items in a padded envelope (preferably recycled envelopes where possible).

I have a 'gift wrap' option and am happy to include gift messages. See my shop photos for examples of packaging featuring lino printed packaging, designed and hand printed by me!

I send UK parcels Royal Mail second class as standard with proof of posting obtained. I also offer expedited first class.

I use international track and trace with signature for USA parcels.

Please check for any customs or import charges in your country, which are the buyer’s responsibility

What metal do you use?

Ear wires:
These are most often silver plated or aluminium. I also use sterling silver, stainless steel (hypo-allergenic) and the listing info has specific information for each item. I am happy to alter ear wire type if possible, just ask. This also includes the clip-on style.

Wire & findings (jump rings, connectors etc.):
Most of the wire I use is either copper, aluminium or iron and plated with copper, silver or black colour plating. The thickness I most often use is 0.4mm.

For more specific information about the components in a particular item, please ask.

What gemstones do you use & can you make items in specific birthstones?

Many and yes!

I love to use semi-precious gemstones like agate, quartz, lapis lazuli (and many many more). I find the reputed mystical and healing properties of these stones interesting (and know many people do) so will include a few lines about these for the appropriate items.

I think there's something special about using organic materials and wearing treasures from nature against one’s skin. I find it a joy to work with them and hope this positive energy will transfer to their new owners.

See my 'birthstone jewellery' and 'healing jewellery' section in the shop to find these items.

What are the clay/ceramic components?

Clay components
These are made using either stoneware fired and glazed clay (hardy but can be fragile if dropped) or air-dry clay. I really like working with the latter as there is limitless potential to create unique interesting components and finishes without needing to kiln fire. However it is a bit of a unknown quantity in that I’ve only recently started working with it and have no personal experience of how it behaves over time. The manufacturer information states this is very durable, particularly when varnished and is PVC free, containing only vegetable binders. I varnish these with a double coating but would still recommend taking special care with these components, particularly avoiding rough handling, water or intense heat/cold.

What do you mean when you say 'recycled' materials?

I use beads in a variety of sizes, colours, finishes and origins. I’ll be as specific as possible in the listings about materials. I do enjoy using recycled materials as much as possible mainly due the surprise of coming across unusual items of mysterious origins (!) and I’ll pick them up at places like charity shops, car boot sales etc. or even re-purpose my old jewellery. I will always replace ear wires and fastenings though for hygiene reasons.

Do you post internationally and when will my item arrive?

Yes I'm perfectly happy to do this and parcels are sent with Royal Mail. I will always dispatch orders within 2 working days (except custom orders). I use Royal Mail second class in the UK and Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed.
