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.

Blue Limpet Seashell Earrings in Sterling Silver

A couple of months ago, I bought 100 blue limpet shells with the intention of encrusting a frame with them.
I've been itching to make a pair of seashell earrings with them ever since! They are such pretty shells!

 These little lovelies are perfect for an excursion to the beach. 
White baby pearls dangle inside the shells.
All sterling silver components sparkle like the sun glinting off the waves in the sea.
These are the very first pieces of seashell jewelry that I have made using bought shells. Of course, half the fun of making seashell earrings is finding the shells, and I prefer to do some beachcombing, but I haven't ever found blue limpet shells. This type of limpet shell isn't native to the Florida coastline. I have found a keyhole limpet, and I made a bracelet out of it. 
 You can find both of these in my Etsy shop!

I'm heading back to my sea of craft supplies! I'll be back soon with a new beachy creation for you!

Love,
Del

Gorgeous color of blue on those shells. Paired with the pearls and silver, it's a really pretty combination. I love how you mix and match colors.

Those earrings are beautiful! You sure know how to put things together. I would have never thought to put that pearl with the shell. The colors are so pretty too.
