Wood Trio

Like his Trinity bracelet, Henry Wischusen's necklace is an elegant essay on the inherent beauty of wood. Handcrafted from a trio of contrasting woods (maple, cherry, and African rosewood) accentuated with natural stains, the pendant's interlocking forms reference the prime number power of three in a Celtic knot-inspired composition. Handmade in Peachtree Corners, Georgia.

Make it a set! Pair this necklace with the Trinity Wooden Cuff.

“When I see a geometric shape or pattern that inspires me and I pair the shapes with various woods, I try to sense how the wearer will feel as they put it on or see themselves in the mirror.”

Raised on the rocky coast of New England, Henry Wischusen grew up with an appreciation for his surroundings and traditional woodworking. As a kid, he made all kinds of things out of wood, from tiny sculptures to boats. After more than three decades in the corporate world, he returned to his roots, creating organic works of art with a focus on sustainability. By using intricately woven wood veneers, he's able to let the material's natural beauty shine through while maintaining his committment to keeping forests intact.

Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how Trinity Wooden Necklace qualified for the Collection:

Original Design

Cutting against the grain of traditional jewelry design, this necklace is made from natural hardwoods. The interlocking bands get their distinct colors not from artificial dyes or paint, but from the varieties of wood that are used: Maple, Cherry, and African Rosewood.

Responsible Business Practices

mission statement

To present the natural beauty of the forest using traditional and evolving craft practices that honor and preserve the very organisms from which we gain inspiration and fashion or work.


fair wage

Forestique pays employees a starting wage of $10.25/hr, within 10% of Gwinnett County’s living wage.

- Local (Georgia) minimum wage: $5.15
- Federal minimum wage: $7.25
- Living wage of Gwinnett County: $11.20


paid time off

The company does not grant employees PTO on a formal basis, but meets all our other criteria for responsible business practices.


recycling primary/secondary materials

Almost all of the wood veneer that is brought in ends up being used, whether for existing items or for developing a new item. They are installing a wood burning heater to burn the pieces that are simply too small for any other purpose. Much of the packaging they receive with material and supplies is reused to ship orders to customers. The rest of the paper packaging received is recycled. The boxes used for packaging UncommonGoods items are made from 100% recycled paperboard and are recyclable.


charitable giving

They have been donating to the American Chestnut Foundation for one year ($300 a year) and recently started donating to the Georgia Conservancy ($250 a year).

    Comments about UncommonGoods Trinity Wooden Necklace:

    Really liked the combination of the woods and the design. However, the clasp seemed to be for the left hand and I am right handed. And there was no easy way to reverse the chain. I put one of those magnetic connectors on each end of the chain. Also, the second time i went to wear it, the chain had slipped through an opening in the ring around the wood. Because of the delicate wood and the size of the ring , I'm not sure I will be able to slip the chain back in. Very disappointing.

            I gave the Trinity Wooden Necklace to my sister for Xmas. She adored it, put it on immediately and wore it for the rest of the day.

            It is an interesting and unique piece and has the appearance of an intricate puzzle so immediately catches the eye.

            The earthy tones of the wood seem to go well with a variety of skin tones. It seems that anyone could wear it.

            The chain is gold but could easily be swapped for a silver chain or even a leather of natural fiber thong to match the occasion or the preference of the wearer.

            Very impressed.
