I love to collect sea shells - I am fascinated by all the beautiful shapes, colours and textures. On our recent trip to Portugal I collected some on Barril beach, Santa Lucia
I will be running a few sea glass pendant making workshops shortly
........and thought the shells would add some interests if the students finish their projects early.
I soaked the shells in a 50/50 mix water and bleach overnight. Next morning I left them to air dry and then rubbed some baby oil on them, to enhance the colour and finish.
Next I wire wrapped them with 24 gauge jewellery wire and added a faux pearl to one. I think they are quite pretty and yet the only cost a few pence to make. They could be hung on voile ribbon or twine if you want a sun-kissed beach look lol
an inexpensive way to preserve the memory of happy day on the beach
see you soon......and, if you have enjoyed visiting today, please leave a message or follow by email
