Bad Teeth :-)

About this design:

More of the yellow agate that looked like bad teeth when it arrived. I kept it for awhile before it told me what to do with it.

    This necklace has some very interesting beads. Where did you find the two-hole wooden beads?

    I like the chunky luxe feel of this. Maybe a different title if you decide to sell it? Peanut brittle? Panning for gold? Anything that doesn’t recall denstistry?

    LOL! That one sold about 4 minutes after I sent my email out. I don’t name them when I sell them…I only named it because here you have to. And I named it Bad Teeth because of another design I posted using these same beads. I had some sent to me in error and they were so ugly – LIKE BAD TEETH – but I never sent them back and eventually I found a use for them.

    Jazz, I knew what this one would be made out of before I even looked at the pix when I saw your fun name for it!!! LOL

    I can see why this sold so quickly! Fabulous design with a great ethnic feel to it! :D

    What are the long pieces in front? Like Fashion Chick, I am curious about the 2-holed wooden beads. Thanks!

    Wow, Jazz…this is a spectacular design! For a bunch of ugly beads, they sure are great the way you put them together! :D Add me to the curious…I am among those who would like to know about the front pieces and the 2-holed wooden beads! ;)

    Thanks so much!

    The beads are not wooden, they are bone. I got those from an Eqypyian supplier I deal with, but these are close:

    And for the spikes, I got them from a local gemstone person I purchase from who received them in a box of stones and had no use for them.
