Beach White Necklace & Earrings


About this design:

I have a collection of gems in all manner of shades of white. I wanted to practice my loops and try some wire wrapping. I love how all the different whites blend, and the abalone chips add a bit of shimmer. I think this is one of my most favorite pieces! And, I still stink at photo editing!

Components:

White opal horse eye drops, pineapple opal rondelles, antique brass shell charm(all LB), potato pearls, button pearls, abalone chips, brass chain, wire, and jump rings.

    Thanks ladies, for all the kind words!

    Coral, you should have seen me wandering around the back yard for anywhere to take a pic!

    Lynn, we gotta get you a digital camera!

    Susie, here is the saddest part of this story — we not only own one digital camera, but TWO!!! 8O We use one for regular stuff and Hubby uses the newer one to take photos of the items he lists on Ebay and Etsy. Sigh. Perhaps I should have him give me a tutorial on uploading photos to our PC. I already know how to post photos. 8)

    Just found this and I love it!! Are your opals very white? I got a strand that is quite yellow and I haven’t used them because of the color. Great job with the wrapping and the design! You and I appear to share similar taste. As soon as I get my act together I will show you what I mean. Lovely work, Susie!!!

  22. Elis Mom
    Elis Mom says:

    Thanks, Becky! The white opal horse eyes are creamy white. The pineapple opal ranges from creamy white, to yellow, to speckled sage. I just ordered another starnd of each cuz I love them so much! I can’t wait to see your designs!
