About the Wood

This Old Growth Redwood took around 800-1,500 years to mature and spent its life growing in the Hills of Aptos, CA. This piece of wood was provided by a Navymen named Dave. Dave, 78 years old, gifted this Redwood from his collection and shared wild stories of his young life in the Navy and being a lifelong woodworker. Dave values the wood he has collected throughout his lifetime, so receiving this gift feels like an extension of trust from one woodworker to another. With this necklace, you'll feel Dave's care for his craft and life experiences.

About the Design

The arrangement of the beads on this necklace, which lead downward to the anchor-shaped pendant in the center, is a powerful symbol of our innate human desire for stability and security during challenging times. Just as the anchor provides a firm and steady foundation for a ship, so too does our quest for stability provide us with a sense of grounding and strength in the face of adversity. By wearing this necklace, we are reminded of the importance of seeking out and holding onto the things that provide us with a sense of stability and security in our lives, even amidst the most turbulent of waters.

History of the Wood

This combination of African Rosewood and Walnut was gifted from Frank. Frank owns a cabinet-making business in Hollister, CA, and prides himself on his quality selection of wood. He was the first ever person to donate lumber to Found & Found. Frank's spirited enthusiasm to support another BIPOC-owned business encourages you to take risks and believe in your vision.
