|Sea Shell Necklace by Bay Moon Design|
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Over a year ago, bead artist blueberribeads had a giveaway and I won a number of her beads. I still have 1 focal from this batch that I won that is unused. I won the 2 ceramic urchins and the ceramic shell pictured above. I added some natural shells, purple czech beads, and mint green Irish waxed linen and created a summer necklace. This earthy, long purple necklace is 26 inches (66 cm) long not including the shell pendant which is 1.5" long. A lovely seahorse clasp completes the nautical look. It gives a piece an earthy look.The shell necklace has been published in Bead-It-Today magazine, issue 8. I am just thrilled. I know blueberribeads is too.
I feel that her generosity in giving away some of her beautiful beads has been rewarded by the beads getting published. For me, I feel like I won twice. I won the beads and a publication. If you would like to purchase the necklace it is available HERE.
