Thanks for stopping by. I am pleased to be able to share one of my necklace designs with you today. This one is published in the June/July issue of Beadwork in the Fast and Fabulous section.
I love the ocean and visit as often as I can. But, when I can't visit, I like reminders of it - a shell, a piece of driftwood, a shiny rock or sea glass. With this necklace, I've created a collection of elements you might find on the beach - a piece of driftwood, different types of shells and sea glass beads. But, the matte beads in the necklace weren't churned by the ocean. I used etchall® dip 'n etch to create the soft, matte surface on shiny, glass beads. It's so easy and quick to do this (15 minutes!) and I love the look. Go to this post to see the easy process or search my blog for etched jewelry.

The editors and photographers at Beadwork did a fabulous job of photographing and showing the details of this necklace, so I hope you'll check out the magazine. You can get it in print and digital.
