I am a seamstress by nature, but I thought I'd give jewelry a whirl. When I was on vacation I gathered a disgustingly large amount of shells and sea glass to make charms and other things out of. Here they are:

top of the shell pendent:


whole shell pendent:


clear sea glass:


red sea glass:




Thanks for looking!

I like the clear sea glass with the red wire.  The red wire is real eye catching.  I love it. Grin

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

I'm so jealous you found red sea glass!!!!! Do you know it's *the* rarest colour of sea glass to find?

I like how you wire wrapped them. I think all of my pieces are too small to wire wrap like that.....I'd be interested to know where you found it (but you don't have to tell if you don't want to; I'll understand!)

Red beach glass is actually really hard to find!  I love that the shell piece isn't bombarded with wire... sometimes people bombard shell pieces (and beachglass too) with way too much wire and it seems like I'm looking at the wire instead of the pieces under the wire.  With your shell piece though it's that perfect amount... just enough to do the job and enough to be more of an accent.  Beautiful work!

thanks! my family goes on vacation in Topsail, NC every year, and that's where I got everything Smiley i sure got lucky with such large red glass! I hadn't realized that it was the most rare color until this post.

My hope and ambition is to find large pieces of sea glass that are colours other than white, brown or green. I'd love to find some large pieces of blue that I could make into pendants like you made!
