Wood you like some ideas?

Ever since I started my wood shop, Loose Feathers, I've wanted to make some completed jewelry so that people can get inspired with ideas for the components. The following pieces are now listed in my completed jewelry shop, The Peacock Fairy.

This first necklace uses one of my round beads. Take a look on Etsy for more detailed photos. Since the holes on these beads are so large, I used buttons as bead caps. I put a dab of glue on them to keep them in place. Also, I strung tiny delica beads on the eye pin that goes through the hollow flower bead for a subtle little detail.
This is a very simple, but elegant necklace that layers one of my pendants with a peacock from Round Rabbit Extra.This summery bracelet features one of my smaller round charms.

I love buttons, they have such a heartstring tie to them and they pull it every time I see some - love the idea of using them as a beadcap, what a clever one!

I love what you did in the 3rd photo with the flowers. Are you comfortable with sharing where you got those fantastic ceramic flowers? If not, I totally understand.

Thanks for thinking about it.

I'm reading backwards through your archives, and I had to stop and say that the first necklace in this post is amazing! I love the round beads paired with the dark chain.
