My older niece, Allison, went to the beach recently. She brought home some seashells. She sent them to me and asked me to make her some jewelry with them. I asked her what she would like and she agreed with me that a necklace and earrings would do the trick.
I used one of the large shells for the focal point of the necklace and a couple of smaller shells on either side. Drilling through them was tricky as a few of them cracked on me! I added some Swarovski crystal stones with purple seed beads to give it a bit of sparkle.
For the earrings I used some smaller shells and added the seed beads and Swarovski beads. The chain is a thrifted chain which I believe is sterling, but am not completely sure. It is a rolo link.
I hope she will like it. I mailed it yesterday to her and she will likely have it tomorrow.
