Macadamia Nut Shell Necklace
We are lucky to have a macadamia tree in our garden which drops nuts in beautiful hard shells. This project uses the macadamia nut shells to make a pretty necklace. It would make a great Mothers Day or birthday present. The project needs help from an adult as the holes in the beads are made with a drill.
