A beautifully handcrafted glass focal bead captures the essence of a Pohutukawa tree against an organic landscape. Each tree bead begins with the formation of the landscape, created using multiple layers of coloured glass that has been pressed into a lentil shape. The tree is painted onto the bead using thin strings of molten glass. The bead is then annealed for several hours in a digitally controlled kiln giving the glass lasting strength, before being thoroughly cleaned and turned into a pendant for your wearing pleasure. The back is not decorated and showcases the base colours of the bead, so this pendant can be worn either way.

The Pohutukawa is a NZ native coastal evergreen tree that is adorned with beautiful red flowers in the summer. It is also known as New Zealand's Christmas Tree. Renowned for its ability to survive perched on rocky, precarious cliffs, it has found an important place in New Zealand culture for its strength and beauty and is regarded as a chiefly tree (rakau rangatira) by Maori.

Each tree bead is unique and your pendant will be a one of a kind piece of wearable art.

This pendant measures 36.5 mm round and 15 mm thick. It is finished with aged brass and hangs from a 32 inch brass ball chain.

Each pendant is gift boxed and ready for giving.
