MATERIAL & MAKERS NOTES
This piece is 100% handmade in Cebu, Philippines by a family-owned workshop called Earthworks who have collaborated with ELK since 2004. Crafted from sustainable plantation timber, each bead is hand cut, shaped, dyed, and then polished with a natural wax-based product and the finished piece is extremely light.
Christine the owner runs an incredible business whose team is made up mostly of women. They have wonderful skills, training, and health program initiatives in place which you can learn more about here.
For our timber jewellery we have managed to trace our supply chain back to the farm which is unique. With Christine the owner of Earthworks' assistance we have mapped all materials, trims, and third-party contributors.
