Sea Shell bracelets

I had been on a bracelet-making kick recently and when I was gifted a box of sea shells, I couldn't resist experimenting with them.  I had never created something with real sea shells before so I was looking forward to it.  Here are the results...

The first bracelet that I made using real sea shells, glass beads,
fluorite gem chips, copper wire and copper-plated chain.

 This is a variation of the first bracelet. I made it fuller by using 
larger shells and more fluorite chips.

Both bracelets had been given away. :)

While making the bracelets, I also couldn't stop thinking of this tongue-twister: She sells sea shells by the sea shore!

Friend me on Facebook

Hey all,

I know I've been silent for a while now and I apologize for that.  The reason for the silence is because I am working on reopening my Etsy shop and I hope it can be done soon. *fingers crossed*  More on this when the shop is finally reopened. ;)

Meanwhile, if you are on Facebook, do "friend" me as I'm making a real effort to be active there.  I've had the Facebook account for a couple of years now but had never bothered with it much.  I know many of you were following me via Google Reader which is now discontinued, and I think Facebook is a good alternative as I'm posting there regularly now.  So, see you there! :)

Hook bookmarks #6

I have always liked guardian angels.  I like the thought that each of us has one watching over us.  So, inevitably, they get featured in my designs. :)

Instead of buying an angel charm, I decided to make one up.  The guardian angels below are made up of glass and crystal beads and silver-plated wires and components.  I will be making more soon.

I am tickled by how the little halo is askew on the angel's head. :)

This pic was taken late last night.  I was in the midst of making a batch of hook bookmarks for a project. :)  You'll be seeing more hook bookmarks here in the coming days and now you know why.  See you later.
