I recently visited Branson, MO with friends, and found some wonderful vintage Peruvian beads that inspired me.
For the 1st piece, I used the Peruvian beads with some natural coral, dyed Howlite and silver accents, all strung on fine leather.
Although the photo pictures a wolf charm, I swapped that out for a turquoise tassel.
The 2nd necklace also inspired a “native” theme.
Along with the pretty black and white beads, I used silver Czech glass dagger beads, more dyed Howlite and silver accents, again strung on fine leather.
