Beach Combing

About this design:

I made these two awhile ago, the shell I found on a Florida beach. The memory wire necklace some one gave me. I crocheted the other necklace. It was sooo quick and easy! I used embroidery floss, and the basic chain stich. I think it might need one more necklace...ideas?

    You’ve done a really lovely job with this! I love the colors you chose and that sweet wire wrapped shell. I’ve done a lot of crocheting but have yet to make one of these. You’ve inspired me to give it a try!

    Makes me long for a walk on the beach! As for ideas, what not take a cue from your first photo and include some driftwood in the third necklace? Maybe in a tiny bottle? I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Makes me think of long walks down by the ocean, and picking up drift wood and rocks. Fantastic job!

    Love the colors and the cute wrapped shell! Since you already have wire and a fabric type necklace, what about adding a leather element? Maybe with beach glass or the driftwood idea already mentioned.

    Thank you!
    Maybe leather and drift wood? Why do one thing when you can do them all? :)
