Lava bead necklace

I bought these lava-like and wooden carved beads (Beyond Beautiful) from the Ben Franklin Crafts bead department. Initially I thought that I would make a man's neck piece, but I couldn't find the carved piece I had saved for the project. (I guess its time to clean out the bead bins.) Anyway, while digging and sorting I came upon this gorgeous shell and wood inlaid teardrop pendant (Imagine It). After finding some smaller shell and wood beads, it was a simple one hour job to a finished necklace. I like the resulting project so much I think I'll write up the instructions for the website and wear the necklace this weekend. Go check out our craft club website ( to see the format changes and new craft ideas. I'll go back to hunting for that carved pendant for the man's neck piece.

I love these lava bead necklaces. I'm sure that women would love them! It could be used with aloha attire (and inspiring me to get back into beading). Totally rocks!
