Meet Ellie, an Eco-Friendly statement necklace.
Ellie, an Eco-Friendly statement necklace is a character and represents all that is wonderful and different about Nature.
Hanging off her cord is a pendant that is, above all, a statement piece. By looping itself over the twine, the Wonga Wonga vine doesn’t need any help to stay attached and also gives support to three Blue Quondong seeds.
Designed by Nature and executed by Jo, this necklace first of all started with the Wong Wonga vine.
Want to know more about Ellie?
We hand make our Blue Quondong jewellery using both natural and recycled materials. Individually processed and prepared, the Australian Blue Quondong seeds are also grown and collected from our home garden.
Growing along our fence line, our Wonga Wonga vine often tries to take over our olive and Lily Pilly trees, which as a result, makes pruning necessary. This means we often have a ready supply!
The piece in this necklace is typical of the way this vine’s tendrils twist to attach itself to other structures. If left too long, these tendrils grow into thick branches which are far too big to use in our jewellery.
Sourced from local recycle centres and second hand shops, wooden and glass beads compliment the unique Australian vine and seeds.
