Alder pendant by sleepyhamsteri Alder pendant by sleepyhamsteri
After my stock of rowan branch cuttings run out I switched to alder branch and discovered that alder has lovely natural red colour. I used my two-sided black tree/white tree design on this pendant as well.

Patterns are made with pyrography (wood burning) This piece has been lacquered twice with clear varnish, the slightly reddish colour is natural for alder.

Pendant is 6,5 cm ( 2.6 inches ) long and 4 cm ( 1.6 inches) wide and comes with an adjustable black fake leather cord.

Alder is beautiful to work with and you have brought out the gorgeous colour of alder nicely. I think in your work on the design it really looks like alder as well, it has that beutiful gnarly look

Thank you. I have yet to test various other tree cuttings like scots pine and birch but I think I like the alder best because of that nice red colour.

I am writing a book on native trees at the moment and alder is one of my favourites :) Birch is beautiful to carve green, really pure white and when its spalded its stunning and scots pine can have a really nice golden colour :) I look forward to your work
