Drilling sea glass, working on components, but I am finally getting some jewelry put together. This is the part I love.
We took an last minute trip to the beach over the weekend. The kids did good in school and it was just a nice way to start off the summer together.
The boys hunting sand crabs.
I found lots of great things on the beach, here they are mixed with some things that will hopefully be listed in my Artisan Accents shop today. (finally getting some cuffs in there as seen in Belle Armoire Jewlery 2012)
I took one of those big old swirly shells (the middle from whelk or conch like shells) and made this Tribal Mermaid necklace. This is not the necklace of a pretty sittin' mermaid, this mer-gal is a hunter!
Then I came home to a wonderful package of beads by Genea. I didn't get pics, but I got more headpins from her. So I thought I better start using up my headpin collection. There were a pair I got from her last year. I thought they'd look good on these ear components.
They looked really good with my other Genea necklace I made and my NEW do-rag I got at the shore. Julia and I shopped for them together. Here is mine.
Here is Julia's. You can see who is brighter!!! It was so fun to shop with her. She totally pegged me and picked out mine for me. She said, "this is your style mom". Yep. It is.
So, some jewelry is getting made. Hopefully to be listed very soon. Off to drill some more sea glass and make some charm necklaces today, and finish up some components.
Also plan to list some jewlery, gotta edit pics first.
Hope you are all keeping busy too.
