I must have been thinking about beaches and sand between my toes while I made this, lol.
This is a etched shell pedant, with sea beads, crystals, fresh water coin/round pearls, turquoise chips, and glass beads.  Sterling silver ear wires, chain, wire, and clasps were used as well.

I love it, any critiques though?

And I'm still figuring out how to take good pictures, so bare with me here.

I can't believe nobody has commented! Shocked I love all the pieces!  They really remind me of the beach.  I hope that they bring back fond memories for you when you wear them! Cheesy

I really like your color combinations and that the beads on the necklace are significantly smaller than the etched shell pendant which compliments and accents the "main event", in my opinion.  I think your photos are attractive.  You have good lighting and nice composition, however if I were looking to purchase the necklace I'd like to see it laid out so I could see the whole thing clearly.  A shot on a neck (real or fake) is nice so one can see how long it is, of course actually length (inches or centimeters) is very nice info for text.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I think your background is really nice.  Nothing on your pieces blends into it, but it's not boring and the softness adds a nice ambiance to your presentation.

I love the variety of colors and textures. There is a wide range but they all work well together.
