Driftwood necklaces

Beautiful pieces of driftwood from Maine + my dad's tiny drill bit + bronzed jump rings + bronze necklaces = handmade jewelry!  It's been so long since I've done anything like this, but I'm pretty stoked about how they look:

Block

Thumbprint

Keyhole

Canoe


Wishing stone

Diamond

Giving tree

Paddle

Horizon

Hatchet

I thought about oiling them or sealing them with polyurethane, but there's a slight problem in that I don't have a space with good enough air circulation to do such treatments.  But the next time I'm lucky enough to get back up to Maine, I think I'll have to collect a second batch!

These are gorgeous! I love the diamond one. How big are they?

I'm glad you like them! Lauren, they're anywhere from 2-4 inches long; not tiny, but not giant, either.

i love these gems. really nice pieces you got there. my tip, if you like to treat them, use essential oil, just a bid and rub it in good. makes them real smooth. I use bergamot with my driftwood jewlery.

Bergamot, huh, never thought of that! Perhaps with my next batch I'll give it a go!
