Carved Focal Bead

Today's bead is 1.5 inches long which would make a great bracelet focal bead! These would work perfectly on a 2 or 3 strand bracelet as the focal point. 2 or 3 of these beads lined up on their strands with "bands" of beaded strands, sounds interesting!

I'd love to see a band made of ivory pearls or mother of pearl! That would be a nice combination of textures and shapes. These would also look great in a knotted hemp cord piece, particularly as the focal bead in a choker. Very cool and hip (or maybe that should be "hippie")!

Either dressing this bead up by using pearls and crystals or by letting its cool vibe hang out with hemp cord, this is definitely a noticeable bead!

Hope you are all having a great week so far!!

ooh, that looks a bit like the ancient Irish script "Ogham" - http://www.ancientscripts.com/ogham.html

You could do a Celtic design with it, too!
