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.

Swirly Shell Jewelry

Yesterday I mentioned that I had another bracelet that I made using those gold curved twist tube beads. (Say that fast 10 times!) I didn't use seaglass, and I didn't use local shells.

I used umbonium shells!
Such cute little shells....

How could I resist?

And with earring to match.

And tiny freshwater pearls.

It's lightweight, too. You'll barely know it's there. Delicate and dainty. The earrings are a nice length to sway back and forth.

While I was playing around, I made some more simple earrings.

I know, they look just like the cuff links I made! But trust me, they are surgical steel earrings.

Sundial shells are really cool, and shaped the same way as the umbonium shells.

I haven't found out what these shells are yet, but they are cool, too.

These are hard to take pics of. I deleted all of them but this one. I need to take some more.

They are easier to photograph on a barrette!

Another swirl type shell. It's really cool! This is a large size hair barrette....

and I made a couple of medium size barrettes with a couple of the shells Cheri aka ShellLady sent me. And a necklace, too! After I send some pics to her, I will share them with you. She really should be the first to see those, don't ya think?!

My fingers are crossed that I will be back tomorrow to show you what else I've been up to, and maybe it will be some Sanibel shell jewelry!

Or maybe what else I've done with pearl abalone shells????

See you soon!

I wish my hair would hurry up and grow faster so I could start wearing some of those barrettes.

The necklace is so elegant looking. I see it with a nice black dress and dinner out. Love the drop earrings too.
