New style

 A couple of years ago when I was in Israel over the summer I picked up some semi-precious beads on the streets of the Old City in Jerusalem. I haven't done much with them, but I decided to pull out this one and create something for a friend who generally has a different aesthetic than I do.  This is a long piece that just slips over the head. I was really pleased with how it came out and the combination of the wooden ring with the brass leaves and chain and malachite.
