While we were there, I was hoping to be able to do some beach combing. I got lucky, and we were able to do that twice. The beaches were mostly covered in just sand. Hardly any shells or other findings were around, but we did find some good stuff.
If you are interested in seeing what we found, check out my Youtube video. I show my finds at the end of the video. The beginning, I show my process of getting a shell ready to wire wrap into a necklace.
Since I've been back, I have been playing around with seashells, wire and sari ribbon. Here are some cocoon bead links I made...
Then I wire wrapped some shells and added jasper, crystals, glass beads, quartz, and agate to make some pretty cool Bohemian pieces. At least I think they are pretty cool. What do you think?
The last thing I decided to make was a big pair of earrings. These two clamshells were hooked together, so they made a perfect pair of earrings I wire wrapped them with copper wire and added Picasa Jasper.
So...let me know what you think. Would you wear any of these? One of these pieces has already been asked about. She plans to wear it on her next cruise in a couple of months.
