Wear Old It's New Again

Saturday, June 27, 2015


Today is the reveal for the Summer Water's Challenge sponsored by Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge.  You purchase a kit and go at it. Lol.  This is My Kit of Sea glass and crystals. Included also were some Vintage findings.
First I made a Three strand Bracelet using Brass spacers from the kit, Bead caps from my stash, clasp from the kit, chain from my stash and wire wrapped pearls from B'sue Boutiques.

Next I took one of the Aquamarine Sea glass focals and strung a Long Necklace.  I added White glass pearls from my stash to the Mix. The Necklace hangs 17 1/2 inches long. Isn't that Bracelet Gorgeous.

This Necklace with the daggers is pretty cool. Sets nicely around your neck and lays flat. Next up I used that second focal in another bracelet with gorgeous Brass connectors and dangles.  You know me have to have those dangles.  It looks better on the arm than I could photograph, but I love it.
Bracelet has Brass chain and extender
