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.

Olive Shell, Pearl, and Abalone Necklace

You may remember a while back I posted a pic of some champagne colored stick pearls, some abalone beads, and an Olive shell...
After gathering additional supplies, I have been working on it...and it is finished!!!

I added some Swarovski Crystal bicones in Sand, some South Sea Shell Pearls, and a few copper beads. 

It lays so nicely around the neck...MY neck :D
I'm sure it would lay just as beautifully around any shell lovers neck!
 Now I need to take some pics of it on my bust. NOOOO not MY bust....my necklace display bust! HAHA!
Had you wondering, didn't I???  This pretty Olive Shell Necklace doesn't hang down THAT far! It rest perfectly on the.. ahem...upper chest ;)
I've been liking shorter necklaces like this lately. Do you?



Love,
Del

This looks so elegant and festive!! I do prefer shorted necklaces..., when I wear them, occasionally..., well, rarely, I have to say.

Oh no! You had me scared for a minute there. I thought this was a family friendly blog!

Seriously though, it's beautiful and I love the soft colors you chose. I'm not a fan of the long necklaces so I really like this one a lot.

I have been making shorter necklaces lately also. I love the jewelry you create with your shells. This one is soft and lovely.

That is gorgeous and would be perfect for Fall clothing! Wouldn't it look good on a dark red top! We made the long trip to NC....11 hours! But it really is beautiful with all of the Autumn colors! I'm beat...but working on a post for tomorrow! Enjoy your day, my friend! Hugs! ♥♥♥
