Wooden beads

This is another fingerweaving bracelet. I was taken with the patterns on the palmwood beads, and wanted to showcase them. I think I actually made this bracelet too full - not something I realized was possible - so in the end it reminds me constantly of a caterpillar with wheels.

The wooden beads are marvellously lightweight, and blend nicely with the assorted seed beads. I especially like that this technique allows for no metal, which makes it perfect for people whith metal sensitivities. I am enjoying the process, even if this one doesn't please me. Had to happen sometime!

I did one similar using old shoe buttons. It got too full to wear, but I like looking at it and running my fingers over it.
