A Day at the Beach

About this design:

I would just love a day at the beach right now (with a picnic lunch) :D The focal beadsnest lampwork bead was the inspiration for this necklace. The bead is a little pricey for me but all of the beads I've seen like this in bead shops run about $50, twice what lima is asking so in the end it's a wonderful deal :D


four shapes and sizes of african turquoise, Shell, brass tube for bail, brass clasp, and wonderful beadsnest lampwork bead from Lima! Thanks Lima!
