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.

Beachy Seashell Lava Stone Bracelets

I have been feeling oh so beachy, and summer isn't over yet! We still have weeks of beach weather left, and it only gets better ;) I love the beach year round, not just in the summer.

But before I get off track, let me show you what I have been up to!


These starfish shaped lava stone beads are so cute and beachy! I love these colors together, and they go so well with this kings crown shell. I used some of the same ceramic beads that I used on this necklace, and added in some amazonite, and tiny teal glass beads.

I used a mermaid toggle clasp, and it gives it the finishing touch I was looking for. I have been holding on to these toggles forever!

I thought it would be fun to try to drill a puffy sand dollar and see what happened.....


Such a neat under the sea bracelet, don't you think?! I used some beads that I frosted last year, and didn't use. They look and feel just like seaglass! A little 3mm faceted glass bead in capri blue accents the starfish beads. A mermaid toggle on this one, too!

And lastly, for now (I do have a few of those starfish beads left!)....


I drilled through one of the small paper figs that Cheri sent me! Some freshwater pearls between each BLUE starfish bead add a lovely accent. This shell isn't as yellowy as my pics make it look, it's more of a soft beige maybe. A very light tan I guess.


A cute fish toggle finishes this beachy bracelet off nicely. These do lay much better around the wrist than they do flat. Taking some of these pics was more difficult than drilling shells.

I have a few more bracelets to share/show, and a couple of necklaces. 
I'll be back soon with another reveal!

I like the starfish and sand dollar one the best. Is the lava stone heavy or light weight? I've never heard of that.

Those are very cool. I have never heard of lava stone beads. I love the beads you frosted, they do look like sea glass. Love the mermaid toggle too! Nice job!

OMG Della! These are awesome! Just think of how pretty these would be on a nice, suntanned arm. I've never seen anything like them.
