Wood jewelry


One way to survive hard times is with wit… a sense of humor and an appreciation for the absurd. The 1930\\\’ to the 1950\\\’s, Depression years followed by war years, brought about some of the wittiest and most absurd jewelry of the 20th century, and some of the most fun to wear.

Wood jewelry was either assembled, as the wood beads mixed with plastic, glass and other materials, or carved and painted, as the figurals shown below. Fashioned by both jewelry companies and home crafters, the designs seem endless and the creativity amazing.
