I love to crochet beads into necklaces. This Fall copper is my favorite metal. In this crocheted necklace Chinese turquoise and really interesting metal findings are blended together. I have also worked with silver wire and gems and minerals which are royal blue like lapis and blue cat's eye beads. Another popular combination is black snowflake agate and sterling silver. Variations of these necklaces can be found at the Rehoboth Art League throughout the year.

I love the beach and and my vintage pink sea urchin necklace combines pieces from two of my favorite shops. I love to shop for beads at Etsy stores and two that I frequent often are Humblebeads and Antica. I purchased the pink sea urchin from Humblebeads and the vintage pink beads from Antica. The pink beads were originally part of some huge '50's earrings that combined the pink beads with aqua and royal blue beads. I gave the pink beads new life by putting them in this necklace. I am wondering what the aqua beads and royal blue will be repurposed in their next lives.
