With Valentine's Day coming up, I am in the mood to play with hearts....and RED.
Red 'beach glass' which is faux sea glass, really sets this little heart off in perfect Valentine's colors!
It is really a darling lil bracelet, even if my pics suck....and believe me THEY DO! I'm a little "out of practice" in the photo taking and editing part of my life. That's what happens when you don't do it enough!
When mom and I were at the bead shop, they had a trunk show going on, and I bought a few strands in different colors of this faux sea glass. They were labeled Sea Glass, but WE know they aren't the real thing... don't we?!
I'm not usually a RED person, but I do love this very dark red! It's so pretty, and Valentiny! hehe Valentiny!
This bracelet is wire wrapped together with jump rings connecting the heart shell, to keep it from twisting and breaking the shell. The toggle is also j' ringed to the bracelet for better movement. Normally I would have just wire wrapped them directly into the design....but this is a delicate lil shell, and we want this to last a loooooooong time. Although I did drill some perfect holes in this pretty baby! Just look at them!
Baby faux pearls and silver daisy spacers highlight the red matte glass beautifully :D
I had 4 pieces of this red beach glass left over, and with 2 of them I made earrings....and will probably make another pair. Well....maybe I could do a guy bracelet with them???? Hmmm.
Sand Dollars are so very delicate and fragile, but with care really do make a nice pair of earrings!
Seashell Hearts Cockles and Sand Dollars aren't something you would want to play sports in :)
I'm thinking more of dining and dancing, and normal daily wear. No rough housing allowed!
I'll be doing retakes of these today....even though I would rather PLAY!
Have you started thinking of your Valentine?
