    Cool idea!!!
    I have so many of these beads sitting on my dresser. I wear my Pandora necklace nearly every day. I bought lots of the “knock-off” beads but never seem to use them on my necklace. I really like your design with the leather cord as a 1/2 & 1/2 with the tiny beads. You’ve given me an idea of what to do with all the beads I never wear.

    YES! Add these to your line of beachy jewelry. They’ll mix and match with the wood and pearls. :)

    Becky I’ve got lots of beads in my stash. The knock-off pandoras were in clearanced kits so I got several last summer. I also bought beads before Christmas. Right now the only money I’m spending is on the stuff to make the wood jewelry. My Mom gave me money to invest in that hoping I will make it back.

    As far as ideas go, I’m constantly scouring Pinterest and googling things to get ideas. I NEVER exactly copy anyone. A lot of my stuff is like 4 different things I’ve adapted to what I have on hand. Or an idea I saw and said if I do thia part different it will be better.

    Thank you everyone.

    And then sometimes I sit down and put some beads I haven’t used on my board and say “what do you want to be and who do you want to be friends with?”. And then look in all the boxes for potential friends.

    As the others said, you’ve created a great sense of ocean and beach. I think the sea horse is an especially good addition. All that seems very far away just now; we’re looking at a week of arctic temperatures.

    Deb, this is beautiful. It’s a fun asymmetric design that you balanced with a double strand of smaller beads to complement the large ones.

    Deb Harding says:

    Thank you Martha, CAS and Science Chick (every time I see your name the song Weird Science pops in my head lol).
    Going to try and do some variations on that today at some point.
