Ancient Bones Necklace
I got the original 4 bone beads, the heart pendant and fish charm while we were on vacation in Gulf Shores, AL a few years ago but had no idea how to make jewelry, I just knew I loved them and would figure it out. Turns out, it's pretty easy. I originally made a long necklace using turquoise beads but was never happy with how it looked. I played around with it tonight, as well as bought a few more bone beads over weekend, and love how it turned out with the red, blue and tans all working really nicely together.
I like to think of it as "ancient" because I imagine these parts all coming from someplace much older... although I tend to always think of the bones as charms because otherwise... ick. :)
