Ebony is here to remind us to be current and clear-headed so we can make wise and informed decisions. We are being asked to seek new ways to create beauty and harmony that are sustainable for the long-term.
This little black heart is handmade using reclaimed and salvaged ebony wood. It’s carefully hand sanded and finished with a natural matte and strung on a delicate (but strong) 18″ 14K gold fill chain.
Ebony wood is one of the most expensive and prized hardwoods. Taking 70-200 years to reach maturity, over harvesting and illegal trade makes this evergreen endangered.
Adea Chung has been creating one of a kind pieces using recycled skateboards and discarded offcuts since 2007. Under the name Billy Would Designs, Adea hand makes each piece creating unique wooden jewellery and accessories. With a strong focus on sustainability and clean design, she aims to change how we look at waste and our relationship with this discarded precious resource.
Growing up in the interior of British Columbia, self expression and creativity were a way of life. As the oldest of 6 obnoxiously talented siblings and influenced by parents who’s life mission was to make art, music, and babies; Adea is self taught and always learning. The name Billy is after her daughter, a constant source of inspiration and joy.
