Silk and Bones

Have some carved bone beads that someone brought me from a trip, want to test the dyeing process to see if they will take the color.

Would like to match this new connector bead, the color is ginger-toned. The loops are darkened flat wire made oval, look a lot like a heavy steel or bronze type look.

Could see the bone beads mixed with costume pearls in the same shades and maybe some dark faceted glass beads for sparkle.

Posted this bead on Etsy in the expeditionD artbead shop. Have two more smaller ones that coordinate, have to finish sanding, polishing and buffing them before they are done.

Like the asian style imagery and the ancient, aged look.
