In the meantime, remember that amazing turtle adventure I had last summer? If you don't, you can go here to read about it and see the video. As a result, I started collecting turtle-related beads, pendants, etc. and here's the first design I completed as a result:
I saw this cute ceramic turtle link at Pajego Art House and asked if she would be kind enough to make me a pair and she was! Aren't they so cute?
Accent beads are some small carved wood rounds and pink shell ovals both from Michael's.
The teal rondelles are dyed jade and I used brass wire and brass earring hooks.
Now the turtle curse is well and truly broken as I can take turtles with me wherever I go!
P.S. I will get back on track with the 1,000 post winner announcements later this week.
