About this design:

I am waiting for the summer (which will be a long break from grad school!), and here is the result of such longing. :) This is the third bracelet I made out of Lima's recycled glass beads-- more coming!


Lima recycled beads in various blues, green crystals, metal turtle & starfish. The chain is again, from the destash lot-- I've now used it all up (and am very happy!).

    Another lovely set! I just love the starfish, and what’s not to love about that little turtle guy? Nice scroll work on the glass, and another nice set of earrings. I like the pairing of the topaz color with the blue!

    I think this is my fovorite piece. Love the blues with the starfish and turtle dangles!

    Really? Are you taking a summer break from grad school??? Be careful not to get so relaxed that you forget the pressure! :) I finished my doctorate a couple years ago. I went straight through every semester for 6 years! Yep! It was BRUTAL!!!
    Good luck with your studies. Stay focused and go for it!!!

    Well? The break will be mostly me reading for my qualitative exam- but it’ll be less taxing because I won’t be taking any summer courses! ;) beading is a good stress reliever!
