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.

Seashells and Coral

I have been on a real limpet kick lately!
They are just so pretty, I can't help but to keep dreaming up things to do with them.

I'm also needing more bracelets in my Etsy shop, and of course, I made a limpet charm bracelet.
This one is simply darling. Not too much, but just right.
Teal, in it's various shades from light to dark, has been a favorite of mine for over 20 years. So of course, I'm lovin' these limpets and freshwater pearls!
You can find more pictures, and the description here in my Etsy shop.

I also added a new set of limpet barrettes. I know you are thinking...How much more can she possibly DO with limpets on barrettes???

Well....
I used a smaller barrette, and added these darling little mother of pearl seahorse dangles on the ends.
I think I'm on a darling kick, too. Everything is just darling!
The metal part of the barrette doesn't really show as much as my pics portray. I'm in macro mode when I shoot my pics, and it highlights and accentuates what can't be seen to the naked eye. Which is good in most cases, but bad when you can't get a good angle. It's hard to prop a barrette on it's side on a flat surface and get the best detail of it. They tend to fall over.

Another new item in my shop, is this coral ring.
This is a piece of coral I found on Honeymoon Island. It was the perfect size for this ring. It has taken me what, almost 3 months to talk myself into using it. Since I did find other equally cool pieces of coral that weekend, I decided not be selfish, and share the pretties.
It comes with two thin bands, to be worn whichever way you desire. This ring set is a size 7.
Visit my Etsy shop for more rings made by nature, and put together by me!

If you missed it, go back and leave a comment here to be entered to win one of two heart cockle necklaces in my giveaway!

My bracelet supply is still quite low, so I'm off to see what I can come up with!

And maybe get some more beaded necklaces started!

I hope you have a fun and busy day, too!

Those are darrrrllingg, my darling. Must be said with an accent, you know. :-) Try a little 2 sided tape under the barretts to keep them from tipping over during photo sessions.
