|Znetshows Sea Glass that Bay Moon Design Just Received|
I just received these sea glass beads from Znetshows. I am one of their designers. I am challenged with making one daytime (casual) design/set AND one nighttime (dressy) design/set with the sea glass I received. A set can include a necklace, a bracelet, earrings, an anklet, and/or a brooch, etc. that all go together. The deadline is for submitting photos of the pieces is June 13.
The first task that I have to meet this deadline is to brainstorm what I am going to make with these beads. I usually put all of the like pieces together on my table as you see in the photo. I could choose any 2 colors that I wanted and I picked black and white. Znetshows also included a few blue and purple beads. We will see how all this plays out.
Day Time Design Ideas: I am thinking I will make some jewelry for a day time graduation party for my cousin. My jewelry will include:
- Bracelet with Sand Dollar as focal, use blue sea glass
- Necklace with Sand Dollar as focal, use blue sea glass or other blue beads in design
- Matching Earrings-white squares or white circle beads
Night Time Design Ideas: I need some jewelry for an evening wedding
Necklace with sea glass and crystals-Black circular sea glass as focal
Matching Bracelet-Black circular sea glass as focal
Matching Earrings-black square sea glass with white square sea glass layered in top and round black sea glass
I will try to work the purple beads into this design.
I hope this gives you an idea of how I go about making jewelry out of a pile of beads! Of course, these creations will end up in my Bay Moon Design Etsy Store since I am using these scenarios as my mental inspiration for creation.
