I’ve been creating sea glass jewelry and art for almost six years now and naturally have collected lots and lots of beads along the way. I’ve purchased beads at bead shows, at Michael’s and A.C. Moore, at bead shops in Colorado, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maryland, purchased online from a variety of sources and have purchased finished jewelry items to re-purpose the beads. I now have twenty full bead boxes full of fun and colorful beads. I decided that one of my New Year resolutions should be using beads I haven’t used in a long time.
Since the New Year I have been focusing on creating sea glass jewelry sets, so I decided to combined the two and create new sea glass pendant and earring sets along with beads I haven’t used in a long time. I’m thrilled with the results!
The beads I used were from a finished piece of jewelry. The fabulous cornflower blue sea glass is from California. The green set earrings are created with sea glass from California and the pendant is sea glass from the Bahamas that was found by a friend.
