Beadwork by Mike Smetzer - necklace with "exotic" wood squares, white and gray glass pearls, enameled shell pendant strung on gold color wire

This 30-inch necklace is made with “exotic” wood squares and 6 mm white and gray glass pearls strung on braided gold color wire with a gold-plated lobster clasp. An enameled shell finding is suspended by a pinch bail as a pendant.

The contrast of gray and white beads is more subtle than the pink and burgundy in the last piece, but I like it with this finding, which includes gray tones along with the white of the front and the brown showing through from the back. This 30-inch necklace is made with “exotic” wood squares and 6 mm white and gray glass pearls strung on braided gold color wire with a gold-plated lobster clasp. An enameled shell finding is suspended by a pinch bail as a pendant. I tried using bottom squares with the holes drilled through opposite points to give the round pendant more space.

This third necklace of wood squares and glass pearls was intended to be the last in the series as my string of wood squares was down to one square, but Vera produced a second string of squares she had stashed away in one of her supply drawers. I have put away the glass pearls for now and intend to use something else with the rest of the squares.

This is a full length view with the wood squares turned to opposite sides. This introduces a wiggle to the beads as they lie flat.
