hand dyed wooden necklace

It’s time to get that summer wardrobe together…

This unique necklace (above) is made entirely of natural elements. The wooden beads are hand-dyed in the designer’s little workshop, nestled in France’s Pyrenees.  The various dyes are created from a variety of plants including – woad, indigo, madder, avocado, figs and artichokes. The beads are dyed via an eco-dying process by which the beads slowly turn a variety of colors. They’re then gently polished and waxed with beeswax to give them they’re soft vintage patina. The beads then hang around the neck via a touch of soft silk, also hand-dyed with plant-based dyes. $61.27 @ dyeing2meetyou
