Palm tree love

I am obsessed with palm trees, so when I saw this limited edition car slash neck accessory, I just had to make it mine. Handmade by artist Shaun Freeman, the palm tree is one of only 10. Titled ‘Palm Avenue’ they are made out of reclaimed hard wood paneling with twine wrapped around the trunk to give it an authentic look. I’ve been rotating mine as a necklace and a car accessory – when I go over bumps the palm tree sways and that makes me happy when I’m stuck in traffic.

We bought number four, so fingers crossed he still has a few more left.  They’re 50 bucks and that includes postage anywhere. Order yours at shaun@studiosubtropica.com
