I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Seashell Bracelet and Earrings Set with Freshwater Pearls and Bayong Wood

Lately, I've had a thing for making seashell bracelets with matching earrings. I made this set right after I made the Vivacious Purple set. The Freshwater Pearls are Midnight Blue, AA quality, and GORGEOUS! I found  a shell in Sanibel that matched my Bayong Wood beads so well, and the contrast between the pearls, and the wood, is beautiful. I love this set!
This set has an Island feel to it. It's Earthy with the Shell, Pearl, Wood, and Copper. Of course, I had to have a little Swarovski crystal. I do like a little sparkle ;) 
The underside of the shell has a pearl, crystal, and copper accents dangle. This exotic bracelet is perfect for a trip to the islands, or any beachy destination. The sun, sand, you with your coconut infused tropical drink with the little umbrella, wearing this one of a kind, Island Dreams bracelet and earrings set. What makes it one of a kind? The shell! I have the components to create another, but I'll never find another shell exactly like this one. I haven't ever made a replica of any of my shell jewelry.
I want each piece to be individual, a true one of a kind!  

This isn't listed yet, I had to share it here, first. I have another one on my bead board, and plan to get back to it tomorrow! 

Have a great week, and I hope to see you soon!

Very beautiful jewelry. Those would be great in the summer, or as you've said, a tropical destination!

That necklace takes my breath away! It is GORGEOUS my friend! You just keep perfecting your art! I LOVE everything...and adding the touch of wood is beautiful! ♥

My brother thought it was a necklace, too! It must be the way I draped it over the rock, or no one expects a bracelet, and earrings set. It would have made a lovely necklace, too!
