This is a pretty cool necklace, and it is definitely one-of-a-kind. The grooves carved in the stick were made by bore beetles that live in and under the bark of trees. I found this gorgeous stick one day and knew it needed to be made into something stunning.
It is bug-free now, by the way.
I sealed the stick to keep the color variations bright. The leaves are cut out of leather by hand.
