Kees Luchs, a professional wood artisan, lives in Lantzville, Vancouver Island, overlooking the Georgia Strait. In his cedar sheltered workshop, he pursues his passion of making beautiful items from local and exotic sustainable hardwoods. Each piece of hardwood is carefully selected for grain and colour configuration, so that no two items are ever the same. Now Kees has created a new collection of one-of-a-kind jewellery using some of the most beautiful hardwoods that he has been working with for many years. Fabulous pendants, made using Bird\'s Eye Maple, Spalted Maple, Lacewood and Tigerwood... Each pendant comes in its own gift box and has a very durable cord 20 inches in length. Pendants have sterling silver attachments. Earrings have been made using Maple, Purpleheart, Bloodwood, local Dogwood and numerous other woods. Again, all findings are in sterling silver. Each pair is packaged with details about the artist and type of wood(s) used for the particular item. Kees\'s European background and his love of elegant simplicity is evident in the clean- flowing, organic lines of his work, and is highlighted in his new jewellery collection. Kees\'s unique work has for many years been sold in juried shows and fine art galleries finding homes on every continent but Antarctica. Every pendant and earring comes in its own packaging with details of the artist and woods used - making for a perfect unique gift. You can see Kees\'s fabulous new jewellery collection at Side Street Studio, Oak Bay Village, Victoria, BC.
