~ Brigantine Beach ~

About this design:

Today was a lazy rainy cold sweats type of day. I pulled out the porcelain starfish pendant and it reminds me of Mom who loved the beach.

Brigantine Beach is where my Mom finally got her beach house and the whole family would gather. ;)

I planned on using leather cord for the top but used the chain last minute. So a re do is in order.

Below is Daisy my last baby who went to her forever home today. She was wrapped up in a blanket all day sleeping. I had to wake her to bring her to her new owners, hence the sleepy eye :)


Starfish pendant, pearls, Czech, Agate, misc beads and silver chain.

    Peggy, your starfish prendant is so pretty. The whole necklace is a beautiful tribute to your Mom. I love all the elements you used and think the leather will be a nice addition. What color leather do you think you’ll use?
    So happy to hear Daisy has a forever home. She is so cute!

    Thank you Laud. I fell in love with the pendant. I bought a bunch more beachy theme ones @ the whole bead show in NYC. Great beads by the way. The pendants were sold @ graceworks lampworks which was kind of odd. They were a steal at the show , I’ve seen them online and they are expensive.

    I was thinking of a neutral leather but your question about color is making me rethink that I should use something other than neutral. I’m afraid of color. Lol.

    My 3 foster babies were all adopted within 3 days. I have empty nest sysndrome :)

    Lovely necklace! I think it looks perfect! and you are a sweetie to take in fosters! In my next life, I am going to be a foster. I just can’t do it yet because I am not home enough. My puppy gets crazy the way it is. :)
