Spokane, WA, November 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Wood chain is the organic missing link to great jewelry designs, and tree-embracing artisans are welcoming a forest of styles that have sprouted at Rings & Things. No ifs, ands or 'woulds': "That wood chain had me at hello - and I had to get my hands on it," says R&T blog partner, JustATish. Other blogs are hewing to a similar line.
These graceful wooden chains go with the grain of any design. Their lightweight links are carved from four gorgeous woods: ebony, "gray wood", tannish bayong, and tiger-striped patikan. Link shapes range from a popular heart, to disk-and-loop patterns, to long / short ovals. Strands average 15" with — naturally depending on the style — 8 to 20 wooden links. All of these options let designers find a chain for any style, retro or nouveau.
According to blog buzz, versatile wood jewelry chains are "beautifully crafted…fabulous" components with "something contemporary" about them, in the words of Lisa at A Bead A Day. She notes its use as "a necklace to be worn at a special occasion." Oval links can "represent the Ohio State 'O' emblem," along with school colors. (Oregonians and Oklahomans, take note.) Silver Parrot notes these carved chains can make a pretty beaded belt.
