Love in the Bahamas !

About this design:

Hubby and I are off the the Bahamas to celebrate our third wedding anniversary!
I made this necklace to take, using my own focal pendant and sea-glass we collected on our honeymoon ! The part I had to most fun with, was filling in the link with resin and small shells!
If you press tape tightly to any open "framework" it acts as a backing to contain the resin .Then just peel off the tape when resin is cured !
I'm off to the's better in the Bahamas !!! :D m.e .

    Happy Anniversary! Utterly gorgeous necklace Mary Ellen … your pendant is “to die for” cute, and the whole necklace is beautifully arranged in colors and style. I love the resin/seashell connector.

    PS. Bring plenty of sunscreen.

    Stunning … I love this! The focal bead is lovely, and how neat that you combined it with sea glass you found on your honeymoon. I especially like the resin circle with the shells and starfish … wonderful. Perfect to wear for your anniversary.
