the beads are all unique, and measure approximately 1.5 by 1 by 1 inch (some are larger, some are smaller). the leather cord is approximately 30 inches in length and contains 11 beads. this long necklace is approximately chest length.
each bead on this necklace is cut, drilled, sanded, and painted one at a time by hand in my wood shop. the wood is pine from a pine tree harvested in the city of ann arbor, michigan. the paint is exterior enamel recycled from a recent home project.
the same but different.
