Bead Stringing & Leather Jewelry Ideas
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 […]
The wooden crescent used in this piece was part of findings reserved for an upcoming collection for Chanel. I was lucky to run across this piece. The texture is very smooth and the pendant is large and unique. I added intricately carved cylinder wood as an accent and coconut beads to complete the necklace. I […]
This is a simple necklace to construct but fashionably effective. I paired tagua and acai berry with faux brown leather which I hand-knotted to allow the natural “vegetable ivory” tagua to show. The necklace is adjustable. I added cherry red acai berry beads to the ends for a finished look.

I used eight 19mm round acrylic bronze and white beads, and strung them on white leather, knotting the leather in between the beads. I used a bronze TierraCast toggle clasp. I hardly ever name my pieces, but when this bracelet was completed the name came to mind immediately. Length: Approximately 7-1/4″.
