Wood has served humankind well: it's fueled campfires for eons, was fashioned into ships to explore the globe, and has kept tents upright ever since
pants they were invented. Finally using it for bling, Good Wood NYC. Just storming Miami but already approved by Nas and some guy named LeBron, Good Wood carves streetily aggressive pendants out of wood by using a laser etching process, then hand-sands them until they're smooth enough to never give you splinters, which actually kinda sucks, cause that guy knew a lot about martial arts and life. Hung mostly on wood bead chains, the collection includes some pendants carved into portraits, like "Skullness", a skull with crooked teeth rocking Wayfarers; "Pharaoh", who's wearing a super-detailed headpiece and braided beard; and one on a light-colored wood chain with a bad-ass wolf face called Wolfy -- also the name of Blitzer's Raffi-ish alter ego who sings kids' songs about dragons who close the budget deficit. There's also a group of iconic images, like over-sized dog tags done in black; the limited release "Africa" with tribal stripes carved into it; and a wooden boombox with a cassette window, big-ass speakers, and a radio dial that can't seem to pick up anything when you wear your retainer. GW also does custom orders where you can get pretty much any image you want carved into chunks of wood by sending them a jpeg, then have it layered with crystals, or lasered onto fancier woods like birch, blood, lace, and zebra -- which, if they're anything like their cousin the mule, can pitch quite a tent themselves.
