I am part of the Ocean Blog Hop being sponsored by Lisa Lodge, A Grateful Artist..
Back in March I received some beautiful glass beads in blues and greens with aquatic silver beads and spaces. Also included were little silver acrylic dagger beads.
Of course I forgot to take pictures but this is a picture of what was left....
I can tell you I went through several different patterns and ideas....but below is what I finally settled on, modeled by my daughter...Sydny. Of course since we are out of town, I am having to use my sons computer that doesn't have the edit software I needed so I couldn't do my collage...so it is all individual pics. I did a necklace, bracelet, and earrings. I had started a ring...but couldn't get the design to behave.....I will post that picture later if I can get the beads to behave.
The little mermaid bead in the center piece I purchased Pamelia at her shop on etsy. https://www.etsy.com/people/mermaidlagoonbeads
The rest of the beads came from Lisa. I tried many new techniques with the wire forming and the sewing the round beads together. Not sure I got them all down pat....may have to do some redos....lol. But thanks for looking!
