Found this huge bag of tinted craft shells, and grabbed them for a mosaic project. Still have lots left over, so decided to make some jewelry.



Here is the first necklace


Second one


Like the way they look together, too.


Thanks for checking them out. Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

These are so pretty!  Were the holes hard to make?

So pretty! I love that you could wear them separately, or together.

Gorgeous!

I too was wondering wether the holes were difficult to make.
I've got a dremel, but never used it. Now you made me want to use it.

Thanks ladies! Smiley

I use my Dremel a lot! It is very handy for so many things I create. Had it for about 8 years and think I've gotten my moneys worth. I encourage you to try it out sometime. Smiley

You should make a lot of them and make them hangable on regular pearl necklaces!

I love my pearls but they seem very plain...one of your beautiful pendants would look lovely on them!

I also love the two different necklaces together...lots of style options!
