Susan Ray, author of Beaded Jewelry: The Complete Guide, Organic Beaded Jewelry, Art and Soul of Glass Beads, Wire Jewelry Workshop and best seller: Easy Beaded Jewelry (with Sue Wilke) offers one of her latest designs:
Forest Jasper handmade felted Spirit Bag OOAK necklace #2012 cascades from genuine brown distressed leather 1 mm cording.
Each bag is one of a kind and has a mohair-like feel. I personally hand felted each bag from wool roving from USA and Australia sheep farms. Needle Felting takes many hours of love. This Spirit Bag is embellished with dangling hybrid ebeads on waxed cording, a Tibetan prayer bead, a Forest Jasper stone on the outside of the bag and a flurry of ribbons. There are two Majoyoal beads hanging on the cording. You will find a special jasper bead inside the bag. (Jasper is known as a protector).
Add your own special Talisman.
Overall dimensions: approximate 12” L (1 mm) dark brown distressed leather cording 1 3/4 “ W x 3” L Spirit Bag.
Necklace: 12’ on each side without the Spirit Bag. Cut cording with scissors to your desired length.

"My love of beads began 17 years ago. I am fascinated by the human story they tell, the nature of the beads, the hands that created and traded them.
This love for beads has led me from my early discovery of the vast bead history available and the opportunity to learn the skills required to create beautiful jewelry myself. I later opened the first bead store in Galena, Illinois and taught more than 20,000 women (and a few men) to bead.
As my knowledge grew I wanted to share it further and wrote five books about beading for the craft industry. Along the way I have made many dear friends and have been fortunate to be inspired by many leading designers. You can visit me here at OneHealingStone on Etsy or on Facebook at my jewelry designers group: Crafting Jewelry Inspiration." - Susan Ray
