Mount St. Helens Volcano Bead Bracelet

by Michele Rose

This project uses Mount St. Helens Volcanic Ash Beads, which are made by Jim Clarke here in western Oregon.

Jim uses a combination of copper, glass and volcanic ash to produce these uniquely beautiful beads.

The kit does NOT include the volcano beads which will need to be purchased separately and are usually available in our handmade glass section.
