This suite includes a set of 2 beautiful abalone shell necklaces complete on blackened metal stands and 2 reversible petrified wood candle holders.

The necklaces were made as per ancient techniques with Abalone shells and natural fibre by local artisans on the island of Papua. The Abalone shell is believed to have healing properties, bringing emotional balance, tranquillity and confidence.
On Papua shells represent prosperity and are often used during wedding ceremonies, believed to bring emotional and financial wealth. Here shell necklaces have been worn by local tribes since ancient times, to enhance the body as well as marking status and achievements. With the shell’s strong mythological importance they were considered to be the links between the human and the spiritual world, bringing fertility and well-being. In the past, shells travelled on long pathways through the Asian Pacific, used as exchange items or currency and for creating ties and relationships between people.

The candle holders are reversible and can hold tea lights or your favorite spice on one side and chandelier candles on the other, offering you wonderful versatility! They are made in petrified wood from the island of Java in Indonesia and is between 5 - 25 million years old, dating back to the miocene era. Over time the wood transformed into stone, making it incredibly strong while maintaining its original structure. Petrified wood is highly prized across the globe for its rarity, natural beauty and exotic allure. It's the state gem of Washington and one of the worlds most environmentally friendly materials to harvest and use. 

The suite comes with the stories of the artefacts and petrified wood printed out for you inside a beautiful envelope. Being artisan crafted with organic materials, each piece is slightly different containing beautiful, natural imperfections. Books not included.
