About this design:

I haven't created in a long time. I was inspired last night to put this one together. I like it so much that I submitted it to BT...I think the components resemble things of the sea. The last pic is natural light


Home made polymer clay starfish, lab chunks that resemble washed up stone, pearl ticks, vintage wooded rounds that remind me of drift wood, "sea sediment" stone that well says it all.

    BTW, you’ve been missed around here, Caryn! Glad you’ve got your “beading mojo” back! I’ve been in a bit of a slump myself lately. Sigh.

    We’ve been at the beach all week…but haven’t seen anything like this in the sand. Very nicely done Caryn.

    Thank you! I have to admit I have been stalking on here but not contributing. I’ve been between jobs and kinda feel like I should buy beads so i stopped beading altogether. Every so often I make something. Sold a few things this month but I’ve tried to put a haul on it..on the other hand I have a part time job at yanke candle and seems I’m now addicted to them. I have way to many now lol
