Lakes are the most important thing in Wisconsin, after the Packers. And cheese. And maybe snowmobiling. Beer, for sure. Anyway, you can do all those things on a lake. Take your snowmobile out to your ice house so you can listen to the Packer game while you eat cheese and drink a Wisconsin beer.
Western Wisonsin's got so many great lakes that they're full of weekend Minnesotans, who drive too fast and bring non-Wisconsin beer across the border. Southeastern Wisconsin's got fewer, but just as great, lakes that get filled from Illinois all summer. Just try finding a parking spot near a public access on July 4.
Everyone loves Wisconsin lakes. We've started our Wisconsin series with some necklaces of our favorite Wisconsin lakes, and a few requested by our friends. The pendants are laser-cut from 1/8" solid wood and depict the lakesand its islands in detail. The large size measures 2" to 2-1/4" in its longest dimension and really stands out. It's for men and women who like large pendants. The medium size is the most popular and measures 1-1/4" to 1-1/2". The small size measures 1" to 1-1/8" is designed for the petite-jewelry lover, and is more about the shape of the lake than the details. It prompts "What is that?" from the viewer. Pendants come on a 20" adjustable waxed cotton chain with a decorative bail. All components are environmentally friendly and are lead- and nickel-free.
Available woods include red alder, a beautiful light wood with a fine grain. It is the most popular and the best wood for lakes with lots of little islands, bays or peninsulas. The darker woods show off the shape of the lake and make it harder to see the engraving of any islands the lake may have. Cherry is slightly darker than alder with a more variable grain. Red Padauk is a deep red-orange with a heavy grain, definitely best used on lakes with a simple shape. Walnut is a rich, dark wood with a fine grain, which makes the details a little more subtle, but with an elegant look.
