So it’s late February again. Grey, rainy, cold. The rush of the holidays is over and summer seems light years away. Year after year I find myself wondering how to handle this lull.
I found myself at a small local bead show just a week ago and found some very fun inspiration. Paper beads. Light weight, colorful, fun shapes and handmade. I was seeing lots of possibilities before I even completed the purchases!
I created colorful and fun bead mixes in shades of yellow/pink/orange, blue/yellow/red/green and lavender/pink/aqua. Each mix has lots of different shaped beads in coordinating colors. I already had fun three strand bracelet connectors so I was off and running!
These are just a few of the beautiful sea glass and paper bead bracelets I have created . This mix includes yellow and pink sea glass. I am so excited about these colors and looking forward to Spring!
OK you guys, it’s February 4th and the pressures on! Just kidding, but, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and your Sweetheart will be expecting something unique, thoughtful and beautiful. How about a unique one-of-a-kind gift created with sea glass? There is no gal out there who wouldn’t love a beautiful piece of sea glass jewelry.
These fabulous sea glass pendant and earring sets are created with jewelry quality sea glass and sterling silver. The beautiful hearts are pewter. They are certainly one-of-a-kind and beautiful!
The “xoxo” and “loved” charms are sterling silver, as are the necklaces. All of these pendants and earrings have been created with amazing pastel sea glass handpicked by me in California. These pendants have been best sellers for the Valentine’s Day!
Some of these designs are available locally at two artisan shops, Side Street Framers & Gift Gallery in Severna Park, Maryland and EL & Co. in Pasadena, Maryland. There are more beautiful sea glass jewelry sets, perfect for Valentine’s Day gifts available in my Etsy shop.
It isn’t often that I get a chance to make matching pendant and earrings sets, but I have been putting some glass aside for a while now and figured the New Year was the perfect time to start! I used some fabulous jewelry quality lavender sea glass and amazing yellow and pink pastels along with some cornflower blue rims. All of this jewelry is available in my Etsy shop!
