Citrine Passage is a standing vessel made from a natural colored sheath from a Clinostigma Palm on wood base. It is stitched with waxed linen, with large hanging nuggets of of Citrine. Citrine is said to help us stay centered and balanced. The trim on the top and bottom is a golden bronze art paper, on which Shelley has embellished with her designs. It is signed and numbered on the bottom.
Completed with a museum quality encaustic wax finish (an ancient preservation process using beeswax and Damar tree resin that fuses into the plant fibers when heated). It can be buffed to a shine or left to a matte finish.
Like all of Shelley's creations, this is a one of a kind piece that cannot be duplicated; it is literally a piece of Hawaiʻi Island. Each sheath is sustainably harvested from natural fallen leaves from beautiful, giant palm trees (about 10 different varieties). A wonderful way to remember your island experience or bring the warmth of the tropics into everyday life. #takehawaiihome
