Ash + Axe has created a range of forestwear inspired by the ancient folklore, including this handcrafted spalted beech pendant and silver chain
The beech has strong association with knowledge and wisdom, writing and transmission of lore. Thin leaves of beech wood are said to have been bound together to form the first book. The associations of serpent with the beech's serpentine root systems gave rise to the notion of the wise serpent giving knowledge to those who ask for it.
The spalted beech pendant comes with a 16" sterling silver chain and comes presented in a brown box
