A walk on the beach, collecting bits as you go along-- shell fragments, water-tossed stones, sea glass, driftwood, fossilzed coral, bits of string and old metal, a message in a bottle, the occasional treasure from a faraway land, the odd bone . . .
This piece features four 2-drop peyote panels fringed with a selection of wampum, sea glass, stones, lapis, pearls, carnelian and other gems, Grecian copper-dipped clay, porcelain, copper rings, paper beads from fieldandsea, a tiny Horus from Egypt, fosslized coral, a deer antler, 3 cylindrical foclas from LisaPetersART, lutrick and dancingstarbeads focals, driftwood, bones and other treasure.
I connected the panels with sterling rings to copper rings. I edged the panels with oxidized chain and clasped it with a handmade sterling 's' hook. I also left threads hanging to complete the rustic look.
I'm so pleased with this one. I crammed all sorts of wonderful goodies in it-- so it's pricey. It's worth every single penny of course, but if this doesn't sell, I'm not worried. You can find me in Hawaii--I'm the girl walking down the beach in the major necklace.
