Seashells...

...some of my favorite things. I was lucky enough to be born and raised in south Louisiana, so the beach was only a few short hours away. Over the years, I've collected quite a few [to say the least] seashells. Most are sprinkled throughout my house, in various baskets and bowls, or just sitting proudly on a shelf in my book case. But then there are those that are crammed into a box in the closet, un-loved and un-admired. So yesterday morning, while I was sitting here drinking my java, I pulled the box out and started looking at them all, individually, one by one. Then, it came to me...since most of them have holes already, why not make something really cool with them that I can share with others...and voila ~ here are two that I created yesterday:this one is called "Beachcomber" and is chockablock full of tiny gemstones, pearls and glass danglies. And then there is this one:named "Pulling muscles from a shell" and is full of tiny garnet stones and coral beads. And I made another one last night, that I haven't listed yet, or even taken pictures of. You can check the shop later this afternoon for a peek at it. It will be called "The world is your oyster", since I used on oyster shell to create it. It's really awesome ~ my favorite, so far.and I just love this! A little rain soaked daisy that looks like it's "peeking out" to make sure the rain has stopped and the coast is clear.

Have a great day everybody!! I'm off to creative land. It's way to hot outside to do anything else, but swim and I don't feel like swimming today.

♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

  3. Love the shell jewelry! I'm another one with a house and yard full of shells!
    I was just looking at one of my containers the other day and thinking about rummaging through it to see what I could create. I do believe you have inspired me.
