Beaded Necklace

This necklace was made personally for my mother on her 60th birthday. Each of her 3 children, 3 children’s’ spouses, and 6 grandchildrens’ names are burned on the beads. Each bead is made from two species of wood including: maple, wenge, yellow heart, paduk, purple heart, and blue mahoe.

This necklace is made with three beads all turned on the lathe. Each bead is made of three woods: bubinga, maple, and canarywood. I may add additional beads and make this a work in progress, but for now, I will wear it as is. Each bead is burned with the name of my wife and two kids.
