    Maybe not the correct forum, but it is jewelry.
    Hope someone can tell me what the charm is made of and what the beads are. The claw is cold to the touch, maybe stone?
    Ill wait for the experts.

    The claw and 2 beads look like some type of jasper.

    Yes, it is jewellery.:)
    It looks like jasper to me too. The two beads Holly refers to are the tube beads.
    The brown round beads look like wood. The heishi-like disc beads, maybe coconut?

    Thanks for the identification of the stone. Yes the heishi type beads. I thought they were shell?

    The first heishi were shell, like the ones from archaeological sites. Many necklaces still have shell heishi, but other materials are also used. Do they feel as shell?

    No they must be coconut. With my loupe I see the stringy texture.
