Being African American I love the natural look of the wood, bone and horn combinations. I find there is so much you can do with them whether you use leather, or string the beads on wire. I found it is also a great way to branch out into men's jewelry too.
This piece here is one that I like to knock around with. It was real simple to make. I used 4mm leather and tied a slip knot to secure the groups of beads in place. I made it adjustable so that the necklace length can be long or short depending on my mood.
This next piece was my first piece for men, I actually made for my dad. It's groups of wooden beads separated by single carved bone tubes. The focal point is a carved bone arrow head with curved golden horn tubes on either side. This was strung on beading wire.
