My grandmother had given me a wooden bead necklace that had crazy safari animals on it along with these cool wooden beads in green and black. I took it apart and began to play with the wooden disks. I had purchased the triangle of bloodstone about a year ago and it was waiting for a chance to be used. It looked nice with the wooden beads, but how to attach it? I came up with the idea of combining the leather cord and the soft flex as the body of the piece and the rest fell into place. I really like the exotic feel of this one!
