One like you cook with? High in the store for that , Never heard of using for jewelry. They must thread when fresh as I do not think you could later. I got a few last time hunting for cooking and I roasted them and guess did not need too. I think right term is Junniper berries and used to making of gin. There are like two seeds to a berry. Are they using whole berrys or those little seed? I can get here if could get out in the hills. I can see stringing the whole berry. Kind of blue black and about 5/16 in size and round.
I just looked at that site and if that if full size picture are larger than Juniper berries. Those seem to be drilled to string. I wonder if I could string these Juniper berrys when green. Some thing there said green berries. Probably craft stores would have.
Thanks Phil that gives me some ideas and thank you to for posting the question. Juniper berries I can go out in hills and pick. We have snow here. Cedar has larger ones. MIne looks like the cooking ones they sell in jar at store.

The Juniper berries do far off. you can find under the trees. What I got to cook with soon picked off the tree.
Few go a long ways asa just use a 2 or 3 in a roast. The ad site in the jewelry says green juniper berries. To me that mean unripe and be softer and maybe can string. I would say string end ways as needle could go between the seeds. Under trees more bluish. Ones I roasted are more blackish. Suppose to be good with venison.
I made Xmas decorations from milk weed pods. We just walk around on Xmas day a nd got in road ditches. We do have much here to get.
I asked son years back where I could get some oil shale legally. He did not know but his friend told where I could find a little of it. I was making jewelry with it. We also painted rock jewelty and polishe rocks.
Maybe they have machine to do the holes. If Indians are doing they have a way of stringing. They slice deer horn and make jewelry. One elderly guy was slicing by hand to make some money and I bought from him as cheaper than we trying. Least that is what he said. Maybe a rock saw. I think he had one. Deer earright they were selling $15 a pair. Had designs on them. People were trying to make money.
I had to make a living. They use pocupine quills in jewelry. MIne on in a can somewhere and do need t be processed. I broke down and bought a $8 booklet on beaded earrings.
Overseas theywere making bone jewelry and put pieces together even with thread. Not strung but to join them, CArved on them. They did not have metal jump rings.
I have seen sliced pine cone jewelry. Daughter seen me a necklace.
OMG Phil yes the ghost berries would be what I meant, and thank you SO VERY MUCH for finding them and this site. It is a wonderful site and they have some super close out deals on beading wire and much more too.
