Wooden jewelry comes in almost all shapes of jewelry. Brooches, rings, bracelets, hair accessories, earrings and etc. Wooden jewelry can be combined with beads, gemstones and other materials. One of the most considered material to combine with wood is metals, as some crafters suggest them to make the wooden jewelry stronger and more durable. If you have a worry in durability, these are two types of wood available to be made to jewelry: Satine Rubane: this wood is very durable. It has rich red color with gold luster or yellow stripes. The polish is very natural. Ebony: a wonderful tree for jewelry choice. This wood is very heavy as it sinks in water. Ebony also polishes very well and is considered to be one of the best choices as wooden jewelry. Other types such as rosewood, maple, bamboo, cherry, holly and mahogany also count as the most common choices for jewelry.
Wooden bracelets are mostly composed of laminated pieces of wood, while other is made of wooden beads. Hair barrettes are sometimes made of French back designs. Old-fashioned jewelry pieces that have at least lasted for 70 years are considered as ‘antique’. They are investment in money and memorial aspects.

Unique type of Victorian jewelry is hair jewelry; it once served as personal memento. Art deco period refers to 1920-1935. During that time, they produced pieces in bright colors and lines. The most popular pieces were long earrings. They’re often studded with emeralds and sapphires and they’re often referred as pieces for queen.
Wooden jewelries are just one type of boho jewelry. There is more to love in the boho look. But I would admit that the wooden ones are my favorite. Mainly because they give me that earthly feeling and that I can be myself whenever I want to.
