As promised Nancy, Here t'is!!

For everyone else, My Mum was in California recently and went to a bead shop in Riverside near where she was staying. On the off chance she asked if they had any octopus shaped beads (in NZ if you ask this they look at you as if you had a screw loose :bonk: !) and they did! So here is the final product.

I think the octopus is carved from nut or a piece of close grained wood. The rest of the necklace is cedar wood and bone beads.

Cheers

very cool ! Does she remember the name of the shop?????

No, her friends in riverside just took her there! I'll have a rummage amongst the otehr beads and see if there's a label.

Cheers
