Things have been a little quiet around here. I haven’t had as many fun pictures to share because my newest camera makes leaves me uninspired. I am working on that problem though and I think hope is on the way. This weekend has many things in store and I am excited to jump into them tomorrow.
I just browsed thru some past pictures and realized I never shared one of my most favorite Christmas creations. Remember these beauties from our trip to San Diego? Well, I knew the moment I picked them up on the shore that they would be given new life as jewelry gifts. I have never really ventured into the jewelry department of art but I figured what the heck! I did my homework and studied up on Etsy to get some ideas and then I just jumped right in. I found some sterling silver jewelry wire and jump rings/hoops at Hobby Lobby and with needle nose pliers in hand, I created six different sea glass charms.
I found some inspiration from these shops:
And this is what I made!
This was my biggest piece and it ended up looking like a heart which of course was perfect for my mom! I made some dark green and dark brown ones as well but I didn’t think to get a picture of them before giving them away.
**see what I mean about this camera-with no flash it is always blurry and with the flash the colors are ALL off. Bleh.
