Reclaimed old-growth Incense Cedar - polished once, then burned with a torch to darken and harden the wood. After sanding off the charcoal and polishing again, the wood is finished with a beeswax/jojoba oil. Traditionally used in Japan as a finish for wood to protect from moisture and insects, this burned effect on the earrings gives the cedar a darker color and merges the natural relationship of fire and wood in the Sierra Nevada.
