gorgeous!

love your nippy mermaid Wink Grin

Thanks darling!  I've been looking for a good use for her for a few months now.  She's been sitting in my charm box all sad and lonely.  Now she's all happy.  And evidently cold.

Well, I did spend about 6 hours on it all told, so I guess I'm using the term "whip" loosely.   Wink

I think it's LOVELY!   Wink

Hi Crafters!
Here is my entry for the Ocean Colors Jewelry Challenge.  I decided I wanted it to be made of little bits and pieces that someone may have picked up in their travels.  A lonely mermaid perhaps, collecting bits of far off beaches.  I chose the gunmetal chain and findings to look like a ship's anchor chain.  The beads are a mix of crystal, pearls, shells, semi-precious stones, and glass.  I tried to choose colors that reminded me of the ocean at different times throughout the day.  Deep cobalt when the sun is bright overhead, cool bottle-green glass, turquoise shell coins, and iridescent freshwater pearls.  The focal pendant is a large antiqued mermaid.  I love the detail on her in the strands of hair, scales, and even her little nipples.  (My husband KEEPS pointing out the nipples to me.)  The matching earrings are likewise made of gunmetal findings, glass, pearls, and crystal.

The necklace:

I can't believe I only saw this challenge on Monday, and had time to whip this up just last night...  Good thing today was a snow day and I could sleep late!

Thanks for the great little tute!  (My personal pet peeve is when someone puts up pictures of something they baked and then say nothing about recipe or technique.)  Way to go to you for sharing with the group!

I got my package Monday after school. I was home for a snow day yesterday and am on one today. My home computer doesn't do well with pictures. So hopefully, I will be back at school tomorrow and I will be able to post my pics. Here's a rundown of what I got in my awesome package. Lots of festive pencils with monkeys, owls, letters, frogs, hearts, flowers, ballet shoes, princess crowns and castles, butterflies, and dogs. My oldest son has already laid claim to the froggies. Some prailine 'n creme baskin robbins hard candy, a 10 pack of push pencil wih cars and trucks and dump trucks (they have the little plastic peices with the lead that you push into the back when it runs out of lead.), 137 stickers -trucks and cars and other forms of transportation. By the way, I have 3 little boys at home who love my package  Grin,  Grin , a magnetic note pad for my fridge, Hazelnut creme coffee, a very pretty valentines bookmark, little grow capsules (the boys will be getting into those today to help keep them busy, we are snowed in), a pink felt flower pin with a cute little pink button for the center, bonus the flower came in a little glad container,  Smiley My very cute valentine has a pink whale embellished with glitter and inside it says -love conquers all, and then last but not least, white chocolate mint swirley pink and white candy. It is very good, I would love a recipe!
Thank you!!!! pics will be up soon.  Grin

I realized AFTER I sent it that I forgot to put in an explanation note.  Yes, the transportation pencils, grow capsules, and book of stickers are for your boys.  I thought they might like a non-girly Valentine.  The regular pencils were reward pencils for your students.  I tried to get some girly, and some boy-ish.  The note pad and coffee were obviously extras for you.  I know it might have been weird to put the felt pin in the glad container, but I didn't want it to get squished. 

Question:  Did you get the Beaded Jewelry? 

I'll post a recipe/tute for the White Chocolate Peppermint Bark later today.  (Now WE'RE having a snow day!)  I took pictures while making it to put up on Craftster, but I wanted to wait till you got it first so it would be a surprise.

I can't believe I didn't notice that I had posted the same pic twice!  I've corrected it to show the earrings dear.  Thanks for the good catch!

I'm really upset I hadn't seen this challenge before!  It's too late to start a new project tonight, but maybe I can get one done tomorrow night!  ::crosses fingers::
