...During the industrial revolution, when parts of the forest were being destroyed, a Dryad's tree was about to be felled. Mother Eagle quickly turned the tree spirit into a wolf, and she became the forest's guardian...
This is a hand-embroidered wolf set into a custom-made birch wood pendant. The wolf is stitched in 100% cotton threads and is worked on to fine vintage cotton, which has been lightly dyed using organic tea, giving a lovely antiqued mottle.

The wolf has been stitched in multiple shades of fine cotton, in split stitch and freestyle running stitch, and is mounted into a beautiful oval pendant which has been custom made to my specifications. It completely encloses the embroidery, in sturdy but light-weight and sustainably sourced birch wood.
The wood has been treated in a non-toxic natural wax by my own hand. It measures 56mm (plus 17mm for the tab and bail) x 48mm in size and is 5mm thick. It hangs on a 31.5” antique brass finished copper chain. This chain is of the highest quality - every single link of this chain has been soldered. This, along with the bail and lobster clasp, are lead and nickel free, and chosen to provide you with a lifetime’s wear.
