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.

White Shell Necklace with Black Diamond Crystals and Biwa Stick Pearls

I think I have a new favorite! I absolutely love this necklace!

I don't know what it is about Thick Lucina's that intrigue me so much. They are such beautiful shells. The few I have found have been white, very nearly white, and 1 small gray Lucina. The Lucina on this beautiful necklace is white, WHITE. It measures 2 inches x 2 inches. I have found a larger one, and small ones, too.

I love the pearls on this necklace, too. The stick pearls are amazing! The iridescence is shimmery and beautiful. The baby rice pearls are just as gorgeous, and add to the elegant feel of this luscious beauty.

As with most of my shell jewelry, I've hidden a little treasure for you.

The Black Diamond Swarovski Crystal is a beautiful creation in itself. The color of these are so cold as ice feeling to me. Like a dark, stormy winter day.

Can I tell you how hard it is to capture the beauty of this with a camera?

I hope I've done well in capturing the essence of the cold tranquil beauty of this amazing shell.
This would be such a beautiful accessory for a beach wedding, or maybe you have the perfect little black dress to go with this? It is so elegant, I can see it being worn with dressy apparel. A stark white sexy summer dress would also be lovely with this. Can you see it? I can! If you can, then this is the one meant just for you!

Stay Cool,

Spiral Auger Shell Necklace

I have been sooooo busy creating, and daily life in general, that I'm just now getting around to getting down to the business of taking my pics! I managed to get a few in today, before I exhausted my battery. Every time this happens I swear I'm gonna buy a back up battery for my camera, and before ya know it, I've already forgotten about it...until the next time! GGRRRR!

Without further ado, meet the star of this post~

I love this spiral shell! I really love it when something just goes together like this. The neutral colors of the shell match perfectly with the MOP coin shell beads, the white coral, and the tan and white opalescent shell beads. The little swarovski sand opal crystal is such a sweet little accent, wire wrapped and dangling above the shell. I had so much fun with this one!

The guys are planning on a fishing trip this weekend. That means the gals will be crafting ;) I already have my project sketched, and just need to do some careful drilling before I lay it out. I'm going to finish up my pics Friday and Saturday so I have all day Sunday for my next endeavor! I'm so excited for my next piece!
