I’ve really been enjoying playing with beads lately! This started in the Spring when I was looking for a way to make jewelry that was colorful and fun and Spring themed, and it’s still going on! With Mother’s Day holiday I decided to use more freshwater pearls as necklacing.
These beautiful sea glass and bead bracelets are made on memory wire.
Most of these pieces went to two of my consignment shops in time for Mother’s Day and were very popular with buyers. I have had requests for custom orders of these bracelets and pendants and had a request to make matching earrings for the lavender sea glass pendant shown below!
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!
