Wooden Necklace

About this design:

I was inspired by the gemstone sticks and some wooden beads which was a play on words. I think it has an exotic feel to the necklace.

    Very unique, I love the look of this one! I see this one with a white cotton blouse and skirt so it could shine on its own.

    Thanks everyone! I like how the tiger eye and blue goldstone sticks mimic wooden sticks in a playful way.

    I love your design for this necklace. I am taken by the gemstone sticks, in fact, these very same ones. I like how you kept the necklace in the same color family as the gemstones, with just hints of the red or orange I can see in the photo. It is indeed a exotic necklace with ties to tribal jewelry I’ve seen and read about.
