One of our summer bucket list items was to make shark tooth necklaces. Little J pulled that slip today! While he and I worked on making the necklaces, Sassyfras and Juiciness played with pop beads.
I've beaded for about ten years, but I've never really gotten into doing wire wrapping. I found this website helpful in deciding how best to wire the tooth.
Little J had fun designing his necklaces. He used palm tree trinkets and some wooden beads on leather strands.

I'm trying to decide if we should make enough of these for party favors at Little J's birthday next month (he's having a shark themed party) or if it should be an activity at the party and then be a take home.
Sassyfras and Juiciness had a great time playing with their pop beads. The beads require pretty good hand strength and coordination to use, but they were able to do it.
