Solid Reclaimed Ipe Pendant strung onto a 16″ coated double stainless steel wire necklace, with a 2″ extension chain & lobster clasp.
Ipe (pronounced ee-pay) is one of the world’s hardest woods, with the same fire resistance as steel or concrete: it is incredibly smooth with an amazing grain pattern and colour.
These pendants are handmade from offcuts from my larger pieces (like my resin river tables & serving boards).
Each one is unique: so you will receive the one in the photographs.
Whenever possible in Lifetimber products I use second life timber that has had a previous life as something else, is reclaimed or salvaged or often was waste or offcuts from another project or woodworker. Most of the wood that I use is reclaimed or offcut hardwoods that are naturally slow growing. This timber is always beautiful and often has character that means it was hard for others to use. I always work with the natural beauty of the wood, highlighting, celebrating and enhancing the natural flaws, knots and patina.
The core philosophy of Lifetimber’s process is to minimise waste: I try to make use of every ounce of wood that comes into my workshop, even the sawdust! By considering a Lifetimber product, you will be helping rescue gorgeous wood from an ignominious end.
Obviously, wood is a natural product and Lifetimber celebrates that: if you are looking for conformity, repeatability and laser cut precision then you are probably looking at the wrong product…. but you have read this far! I therefore encourage you to consider a unique Lifetimber product for all the beauty and joy that it will bring.
If you like what you see and have read, but are after a bespoke commission or customised product, then please get in contact with your requirements and I will see what I can do!
