Beads of Natural Beauty

Harness the natural beauty of wood and gemstone beads. They can be combined to create a chic bohemian look that can be both casual and sophisticated. In my example, the rich, brown tiger ebony wooden beads are complimented by the multi-colored jade beads. To achieve a finer look with wooden beads, choose rich colors, smooth, polished beads and clean shapes.

You can also test out different combinations such as wood and crystal, glass or other gemstones. This will be a great opportunity to add color and interest to your design. Incorporating sterling silver or gold will add a more formal look
