|ZnetShows Beach Glass Beads that BayMoonDesign was sent|
I was really lucky to have been selected to be in the Artisan Whimsy 5x5 Product Test Team for July because beach glass beads was the product. I love sea glass and have a large stash of brown, green, and white sea glass I have collected on various beaches. My BayMoonDesign store on Etsy has several necklaces that I made with some of my sea glass.
ZNetshows graciously sent a group of members from Artisan Whimsey a 5 pack of beach glass beads to design with! ZnetShows sells retail but mostly wholesale beads. They have a wide selection and great prices. There are pendants, beads, the usual and some unusual finds to be had.
|My First Attempt|
|A great necklace for the 4th of July|
Don't you agree that this necklace needs a bracelet and earrings. I had another seahorse clasp on hand so that choice was a given. I attached it to 7 inches of sterling silver chain and used some matching white shell beads and more of the red beach glass beads to create this bracelet.

I considered using black Irish waxed thread and kidney shaped oxidized silver earwires. I quickly ruled that out and came back to sterling silver. I love how the silver looks paired to the dark red.

It was love at first sight! I love the color and shape of the rectangular beach glass beads. Once again I paired the beach glass beads with silver. I had these really cute sterling silver bubble charms in my bead stash. Amazingly they fit on top of the pink glass perfectly. I also had some sterling silver french earwires that I wanted to use because of their size.
