This month the Pretty Palettes jewelry challenge has a wonderful ocean palette - perfect for summer.
I'm a summer child and the ocean has always been my happy place. I head to the ocean any chance I get. I'm very lucky this year; I've been to the ocean at least three times and have camping trips set for two more!

They are also from Halcraft, but these are the Bliss Beads line, which is available at JoAnn's.
I threw some Bead Gallery beads into the mix also. I had some of the gold bicones and some brown shell beads from past designs. Then, I found some at Michaels that I thought were perfect for this theme. They remind me of driftwood on the beach. I played with these for hours!
Here are some other earrings with waxed linen, shell beads and howlite discs.
Here's the necklace:
