“Journée à la Plage”

Description from EPBCornell: "Day at the Beach" -- the Gaea la Vie en Rose heart and the Day at the Beach woven fringed focal got me going on this one and inspired the French translation for the title. (Google Translate -- not within my language abilities. I would have thought this meant "Trip to the Plaza" or something.)
Having realized more than a few of the beads I'd chosen had large holes, and deciding to add the bronze spiral cord end clasp, I added the 2mm cord and only added beads that would fit on it.

Time to spread out the beach towel, slather on some sunscreen, spill out some beads (just large enough not to get lost for a little plein air beading) & a bit of cord, and start playing. With plenty of time to break for a dip in the waves, a doze in the sun, a stroll on the sand.

    What a fantastic pick for the beach! I think you’ve really captured the colors and elements here. I’d love to see some pieces made from these elements.
