Wooden Bead Necklace

So I still seem to be on my jewerly kick! This ime it's not just a bracelet...

The other day I pulled out this really cute bracelet and earring set to wear..and realized that I didn't have a necklace to match. I had a couple of necklaces wth wood beads on them, but not an all wood one.
Light bulb!! I remember I had bought some wood beads for another project (that was an epic fail), dug them out along with a wood finish stain marker (you know the kind you use to cover up the dings in the wood furniture?). Here is what the beads looked like before I "stained" them:

I literally just colored them and let dry. It took a couple of days for the smell to go away :) Then I use some beadig wire (also from my stash) two small clear beads between the crimp bead and the woden ones. The hole in the wood beads it pretty big, I didn' want them sliding over the top of the crimp bead, hence the reason or the small clear ones. Added a clasp, and done. Here is the end result:

Cute, right?

 It turned out great. And is a very near match for the other two pieces.

I love it!

  1. Wow, nice job! It totally looks like you bought all of the pieces at the same time as a set.
