Oh what fun I have had the last two weeks experimenting with new beads! I received these cultured sea glass beads from ZnetShows. They are a wholesale bead company you and you can find them here http://www.znetshows.com/
They were kind enough to supply me with a test sample of 5 shapes of their sea glass beads.
I loved the fishbone beads so I started there.. I got out some wire and made fish shape, added the beads… but it needed something.. spacers! My friend Susan to the rescue, she had real fish bones and I but them in between the fishbone beads. TADA!!!
Next was the fun Conch shell shape. I decided I wanted to have them rolling in the ocean waves like the would be found on the beach! I made spiral ear wires and slipped on the shell bead, then wired wrapped a few blue crystals for the ear wire to hold the shell in place. Love how they came out!
Last but not least we 2 pair of rectangle sea glass that I used as a backdrop for wire squiggles. Because they were white they were very hard to photograph but look great in person hanging on your ears!!!
I have a few beads left over and I am adding red and white beads to the blue for a 4th of July necklace! I will post that next week.
Thank you ZnetShows for the opportunity, this was fun!
