A few new things done lately...
Shell fragment & Agate bead


White shell pieces & glass beads


Lettered Olive shell piece & glass beads - the front...


...and the back.


Multishells


I'm especially interested in what you all think of the one with the blue & purple bead, where I've pictured the front and the back - I really like this one but would love some other opinions.
Thanks!

I think they are all very very pretty and would love to wear any one of them!  The only constructive comment I would make about the pendant with the 2 beads is it might look even better if you were able to stick to a single strand of wire.  And this of course is only my own opinion/personal taste.  I think that is what I like so much about your pieces is the way you seem to wander with the strand of wire around the shells and beads.  I really like the back of that piece actually!

I like them all too, and they're all very wearable. The blue and purple bead one is my favourite - I like the way the beads are peeping out of the shell.

Thank you for the feedback! Of course the people close to me say it's all awesome, so I really like to get opinions from y'all here.
I had a lot of fun making that blue/purple bead piece, not quite knowing how it would come out until the beads were tucked in and the wire was tightened up. That's why I was especially interested in your opinions on that one - the process was so much fun, I want to do more like it!

I think that is a great idea because it really is wonderful.  It is the type of piece you see in trendy shops!

I really like the one with the beads peeking out of the shell. You took a shell that was not quite perfect and made it better that perfect! Awesome!

Oh and BTW your post title "Seafood Medley" cracked me up!
