Fun new carved wood beads



I picked these up at the last bead show I attended here. I say attended because I totally spaced on the last one and didn't make it. What a bummer..I needed stuff at it too.

These were such a cool find though..the beads are wood...carved and hollow..very different then any wood beads I've ever come across. I've put them with green/brown turquoise, some desert jasper and Hill Tribe silver spacers. It's a larger sized bracelet measuring at 7 1/2" to 8 1/4" with it's adjustable chain and clasp. The charm is a little Hill Tribe silver spotted turtle. It will be uploaded to my shop soon.

The beads are very unusual and attractive. And I love the colors you've added with them. You have such a great eye for design! Very nice.

Those are very cool. I haven't seen any like that. So unusual.

Thank you Marjorie and Christina...I can't wait to try these beads on a necklace..I'm thinking a double with a bigger pendant.

I am in love with this bracelet! Those beads are gorgeous! I've never seen anything like them...truly unique :)

This came out really pretty. Are the carved beads the ones I sent you?

Jonara Blu Maui said...

Wow Sarah..thank you! But I can't take credit for the beads..somebody else very talented spent time carving each one..I sure would love to see them do it.

Tina..no you picked up the carved bone..these are wood and I got them from the bead show here on Maui..from Donna..the one that throws it and has a shop on Kauai.

I always eye wood beads similar to those in our local bead store. But I never know what to do with them. You definitely knew what to do with those! The bracelet is "fabuloso"!
