Our Gruva Necklace Necklace is crafted from handmade wooden shapes, fashioned together on a lightweight wax cord with a loop and bead finding. This design features two layers of abstract shapes to create a layered look. Our wooden jewellery is handcrafted from sustainable plantation timber and made in Cebu, Philippines, by a family owned workshop who have collaborated with ELK since 2004. Pair with our Gruva Stud Earrings for a complementary, organic look.
