I made these last weekend after a long break from macrame.  I used curly mop shells for the anklet. For the necklace I used some shell nugget beads and a cool sliced shell pendant. The findings are silver plated.  Thanks for looking, please let me kow what you think.   Grin Thanks (oh, and sorry for the less than perfect pics Tongue)

Those are really pretty! I don't think that I have ever seen shells like that used on hemp jewelry before. I love them. Smiley

I'm a crafty kid. I just can't help myself.

Neither have I. Very appealing! I just adore those curly ones! Did you find them on a beach shore or are they store bought? Did you drill them?

Thanks for the compliments! Grin  I actually bought these shells, but I have collected shells and used a super sharp small bit to drill tiny holes to bead with them.  My hubby is steady handed and usually drills for me Wink I used 8 lb test flourocarbon fishing line (in the center to hold the beads) because it is sturdy, invisible, and has no memory.

That line sure is invisible. Wouldn't have even known it was there. Good choice on the pound test. Thanks for sharing!
