Here is a ancient form of jewelry that I made out of a wood material .
I am fascinated with the look and I hope you enjoy the look .
I wont tell you what the material is and hope you will take a good guess .

I think hardwoodman is close. Looks like some kind of evergreen cone. Makes a nice pendant whatever it is !

I am split between seed pods and evergreen cones.

Whatever they are, they look pretty nice and are definitely unique.

I originally thought like Roger and the pods, I could see pine cones after it was said also.

One piece looks like the skeleton of a Cholla cactus. The others look like seed pods of some kind.
Great ides for the person who like natural looking things.

I also thought “seed pods” once I figured out they were not made to look like fossils – I originally read it as wood made to look like an ancient jewelry material. Very cool and just the kind of necklace I would wear.

I’m not really much into guessing what it is made of. What I want to know is the connection between the formation of the ancient jewels and the name origin that served as the thread title.
