Ethnic Inspiration was named for this wooden bead necklace. The matching rows of beads and the eye catching dangly spirals somehow evoke a tribal feeling. 

HOWEVER, there's no reason the design couldn't be used with other beads...... the glass and silver one below for example. This one suggests a Greek heritage! 

What can be done with other beads... glass pearls perhaps?



Ethnic inspiration - silver and glass


Try your hand at this design, with your choice of beads. Use a jig (supplied) to create a framework, which will ensure the beads line up uniformly. Then practice making spirals. It's the movement of these dangling spirals that gives this necklace a special appeal.

Finish the necklace off with cord or chain, adding a few more beads to give it that extra touch.
