DIY Wooden Bead Necklace

I'm on a necklace making streak these days. I love the color combination of these beads, the dark wood circle set off by little rows of red and white wooden beads and opaque yellow seed beads.

The necklace was very easy to make. I used waxed thread and started in the middle of the necklace, doing one side at a time. The end is finished with clamshell knot covers, jump rings and a clasp.

I bought all of the beads in downtown LA. I went pretty crazy over the wooden beads and now have a whole box full of them. Have you ever worked with wooden beads? What colors do you like to wear in jewelry?
