This one-of-a-kind wood necklace was created by Portland-based artist Kelly Richardson. She regularly finds herself in different landscapes and travels for culture and inspiration. Her wood work reflects her inspirations. Kelly started crafting from a young age and came up with the idea for her jewelry line after a night of sleeplessness. In the morning, her hands were eager and excited to create and working with wood was automatically addicting. It is the discovery of the raw wood; it's the smell and scenery. Each cut reveals varying unique traits. Water damage creates map-like designs and virgin wood is unmarked. The personality of each cut offers new versatility and inspiration for its final movement, color, and use.
