It may look innocent enough, but this necklace gave me a headache. These shells weren't fun to string- to get this thicker look, I had to string onto 3 threads. 1 shell on each thread, then one shell on all three threads, 1 shell on each thread, etc. etc. Kind of like this:The cool part about these shell beads is that I found them at an antique mall.... A very long strand of them for $3! It was a really lucky find. I just hope they don't look too gaudy. I like them paired with the teal, and luckily I had stuff in my stash to go perfectly with this Sand Dollar pendant from Patina Queen!
I am off to download some new music. I found a new band on iTunes that I really like a lot. Slow Runner - Their cd is called Mermaids.

  4. I usually have more luck drawing out my thoughts on paper! Sometimes the words just get jumbled! I'm going to include more of this kind of thing later.
    I am loving your blog by the way.I read it every day. Did you have someone help you with the layout? I love the 3 column layout, but can't seem to get it to work for mine.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
