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.

Something New!

This little project has been a long time in coming. After several tries, and several errors....or complete fails actually, I finally found the right components to make it work.

I've wanted to do a men's line for a long, long time!
Now I have some men's seashell and leather bracelets!
This triple strand is my favorite. The olive shells I used are like the olive for the bolo tie, just smaller.
Naturally tossed and tumbled by the sea to knock the tip off, leaving it hollow inside and perfect for stringing onto a piece of leather.
I made a couple of single strand bracelets, too. One in black....
and one in brown.

I am really lovin' these, and can't wait to get them in my Etsy shop!

I know I have another big, hollow Olive Shell around here somewhere, and I aim to find it.

Of course, I'll always be on the lookout for them while I am roaming the beaches looking for shells.

I do have a couple that are ancient looking, and totally bleached out color wise. I want to use them next!

So, this is one of the things I've been keeping a secret....

stay tuned for more secret unveilings!

Edited to add my links! I keep forgetting to do that!

Olives are such an under-appreciated shell. You have show cased their beauty perfectly.

These are great! I like the single strand the best. But that would be for me :)

I think the triple strand would look great on a big guy.

My brother got married in Cancun and I'm thinking how great these would look on the guys who stood up in the wedding. Very stylish.

They turned out great!
