Commemorative Pendant

The Pendant

pendantA beautiful memento, hand crafted from an aged and elegantly grained wood, infused with silver, to mark the celebration of 125 years of Horticultural Education at Burnley, the pendant was inspired by a venerable Sugar Gum (Eucalyptus cladocalyx) that grew for over 100 years in the Burnley Gardens. When the tree was removed its timber was stored to cure. Now its elegantly grained wood has been hand crafted into a beautiful memento to celebrate 125 years of Horticultural Education at Burnley. Limited signed edition.
