    What to do with small scraps of beautiful wood

    In an attempt to rid myself of more clutter and maybe make a few $$ too, I cut up some smal scraps this past week and made some necklaces. I used some spalted maple, cherry, walnut, cherry and spalted hackberry.

    I have a few burned knuckles from sanding them, but I think they turned out alright. I sold one at an art show this weekend which is good because I didn't sell any bowls . Just the necklace and 3 stoppers. Although I did have a jewerly artist request a batch of the pendants only without the leather strap.
