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.

New Seashell Earrings

I promised ya some new seashell earrings, and although I didn't get as many done as I planned.... how often DO things go as planned?

These lady in waiting seashell earrings match my lady in waiting seashell pendant.
I think I'll leave it up to the buyer which side they would like as the front side. I think the pearls showing looks really nice. I did give these shells a coat or 3 of gloss finish inside and out.

Since I have limpet everything else in my shop, why not a pair on gold plated posts as well?!
The other post/stud earrings in my shop are surgical steel.
But now for the "new" part!
Clip on earring! I haven't ever liked clip on earrings because years ago they were so uncomfortable and pinched your ears. I tried a pair of these on and they are awesome. No pinching, and so comfy. It's about time someone made a decent style clip on!

and I made a pair of frog shell (maple leaf shell) earrings in the silver clips.
These are the pierced look clip ons and I also have them in gold plated. I sure could have hung them a bit more straight. Retakes! Bummer :( Is it that bad of a pic??? Hmmmm.

These new earrings are all listed, and you can find them in my Etsy shop!

I also made a couple more barrettes.
These are some of the bubble shells Lace and I found at Clearwater last year. I love these little shells.
These shells have NOT been hit with a coat of gloss. They have a natural sheen to them. Not glossy shiny, just a light little shine to them.

Remember that necklace I've been looking for the sterling or gold vermeil bail for? I can't find the size I need...at least not for a decent price. I don't want to spend $20 on just the bail and have it be too small... so I am going to go with the silver plated bail :( I'm not real happy about it because the rest of the components are A+++ quality. I'll have it done real quick now that I've decided to just go with it. It's just waiting for the ends to be finished :D

I just hope I don't kick myself for not looking longer.

I have a bunch of new pearls to play with, and some semiprecious gemstones too!

Yesterday when I mentioned that I needed a few things, some of you emailed me offering to send me those things and this really touched me. I sat at my computer crying reading the emails. I was totally overcome with emotion. I am so fortunate to have made the friends I have through my blog, and through your blogs. I appreciate each of you!

Thank you so much for your generosity!

Love ya's, and I'll "see" you tomorrow!
