A few weeks ago I joined Lori's Bead Soup Blog Party.
Everyone got paired up and we exchanged our beads (A focal bead, a clasp and a few spacer beads)
She sent me this amazing Peruvian Amazonite focal, silver toggle, pearls and crystals.
Once I received my soup mix, I knew I had to make something with an ocean theme.
So off to the studio to make some "ocean" beads to go with my soup mix...
This is what I made, a Carmel by the Sea Necklace...
With a seaside glass bezel to hang the focal, a amazonite colored heart and a starfish all wrapped in sterling.
A little glass bottle is filled with beach sand from Carmel California.
(I collect sand from the beaches I visit)
Thanks again to our party host, Lori for putting on such a fun party!
