Pastel Beach Sunrise

About this design:

I finally found some real goodies at Walmart the other day. Deb would be so proud! In the $1 bin I found a bag of shell beads and a bag with 2 doughnut shell pendants. Wow! I couldn't wait to get home and work with them. I wanted soft colors with this one so I paired them with another $1 bag of peach glass beads from Walmart and some aquamarine nuggets(from LB).


Doughnut shell pendant, peach glass and shell beads from Walmart, Aquamarine nuggets, charms, chain, wire, and findings from LB, web jasper and the rest from my stash.

    Some wonderful deals you have found, and what you did with them is spectacular! The colors are so soft and wonderful, like a calm soft warm breeze by the ocean. On one of those days where there is no clouds in the sky, and it’s that really soft blue shade. Gorgeous!

    I have got to make a trip to the Walmart stores around here to see what I can find. Do craft stores also have bargain bins?
