Sea Inspired Jewelry


Sea Inspired Jewelry

Another of my "use what you've got" challenges. I made these without spending one red cent- it amazes me the stuff I collect and then don't use! Can you imagine every single ingredient that went into making these has been sitting in my supply boxes for close to two years now while I was totally uninspired to anything with it!

Necklace and earrings set made using various greenish-blue turquoise beads with lots of matrix (the more mottled the better, I love it!) , bronze freshwater pearls, Hill Tribe fine silver beads (starfish, nautilus and scallop shells) and sand dollar toggle style clasp.

Up for sale in my Etsy shop this weekend.

Love them! OK, I will join you in the use what you've got challenge this week and work out of my existing supplies!

Yay! I wasn't even trying to motivate anyone else to do it, but I'm glad you're gonna try! I just know how us crafters tend to stockpile and can wind up letting great stuff go to waste in a box somewhere!
