Each piece is approximately 1-3/8" x 1/2" and is 3/8" thick. edge comes with a 20" long chain and hangs at the neck. Click the images below for edge currently for purchase through my ETSY store.
The process of crafting edge:
- Walnut wood is selected, cut to size and roughly sanded.
- A single precise but shallow groove is cut around four sides of the piece.
- The longer cuts are made on a customized table saw. The top and bottom grooves are cut by hand with a jewelers saw.
- Plastic inlay material is applied to the piece to fill the grooves. To finish, the piece is finely sanded to ease sharp edges and sealed with a clear wood sealer.
Materials: Walnut wood, Plastic inlay, Clear wood sealer, gloss black paint. Chains and findings are hypoallergenic.
