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.

A Little Heart Choker

Every once in a while, I like to do something a little out of the norm for me. You know, different. I know I have come up with some pretty bizarre things from time to time, but I think this is pretty cool.

The little white heart shell really stands out against the bronze chain and purple batik jade. The beads dangle on ball tipped head pins. I love ball tipped head pins!

These beads are so pretty! Purple is one of my favorite colors, and I love how these have various shades of purples.

It's a really small heart shell, dainty and adorable.

This is a choker length necklace, and lays beautifully around the neck. Perfect for someone with short hair, or nice with an up do hair do.

This will be in my shop next week, and I hope it sells fast cause I really like it. I would love to wear this! I guess I could make one similar for myself. Not exactly like it of course, I only bought 20 of those beads. I don't have many left :(

My wire wrap bracelet did turn out ok, and I do plan on doing a tutorial...as soon as I find the time!

But for now, this mermaid needs to soak up some salt water! It's time for a swim in the ocean. My gills are drying out, and my scales are flaking off. We can only stay away from the sea for short periods, ya know!
It's time for a little R & R.
Recuperation and Rejuvenation!

And while I'm recuperating, I'll be working on a custom order :D
And of course I'll do some shelling ;)

I'll see you all on Monday!

Have a great weekend!

Del those purple beads are beautiful and you are right, they lie perfectly. I'm glad you are getting to the sea again and you know I'm jealous of the shelling!

I am really liking the bronze chains you've been using lately - quite different. Lucky you, getting to go to the beach. I need some ocean time!!! Have a great weekend.

Beautiful necklace! Chokers are my favorite type of necklace.

That is really pretty. If I didn't have such a chubby neck, I'd wear it! Love those style shells! Don't you just hate making something that turns out so great, you want to do more for yourself or somebody else, but only bought X amount of supply? Very frustrating!

Oh...is that lavender? I love those pretty beads with that beautiful shell! Just a perfect combination! Have fun this weekend! Sweet hugs!

Super pretty necklace. I love shell collecting but making jewelry is a bit out of my league. The cockle shell heart is lovely!
