Banksia and Resin Teardrop Necklace
This pendant is made from a piece of Banksia pod, native to Australia. It has been dried and stabilized with resin., then hand polished to a shine. The space where the red resin is visible is a seed pocket. A characteristic of the Banksia are the many seed pockets that run out from a solid center. It is quite an interesting thing to work with as they break easily when cut or sanded, so to get a stable finished piece is a thing of joy.
I hope someone appreciates this as much as I do.
