I have been making my own jewelry for quite a few years now and have always wanted to make my own glass beads. But as my husband has always been into woodworking it seemed the best option, as he already has a workshop and all the equipment to start making our own wooden beads. At first I was not totally convinced with using wood, but now I see what he has made I am just stunned at the beauty of them. All these lovely different woods and none of them have been dyed, they are all natural colours and he has lined them with silver cores. I think they look amazing with my Chinese silvers. Very Happy

These are AMAZING!
I love them! You should open an etsy store, i bet they would sell really well!!

Does he treat the wood with anything?

I bought a few wooden beads from Dreambell on ebay and they are nice, but the colours and variation in these are wonderful!
