hearts from the sea

For your visual pleasure...
My first newly designed necklace & earring set,
'hearts from the sea'.
I made this set from
abalone hearts, fresh water pearls
& antiqued silver, metal findings.
I used bits & pieces from here.

A few pretties from in here.

And Viola!!!
A creation.
You Likey???
It's gorgeous if I do say so myself.
I adored making it.
{I will be listing it in my etsy shop just in case there's any takers}

Thank you friends, for following me along lifes ever changing journey of exploration, creativity & new challenges to pursue.
I guess I'm still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up! :)

Smiles & Hugs Friends,

XOXO

Everything you make is beautiful up to perfection! And I love shiny abalons.

I have been enjoying all the photos and the blog lay out as well. :-)

I keep wondering where on earth you found all the pieces too, that twig with little birds on it is adorable. I have never seen anything like that for sale anywhere.
