Thanks l8nite, I think it might transfer well to something else beside a necklace or bracelet.
How about a hanging bone mobile?
Bone earrings??
Decorate a frame with bones?
Bone handles on your silverware??
that looks wicked, love how simple it is to get them to look so bone shaped, :)

Thanks Pixie. Wicked is good!!
Everyone gets different bones because of the differences in their hands too.
That is awesome! The paint really makes them look realistic!
