    Very pretty!! I have my own personal stash of recycled sea glass originally from a beach near where I grew up. Using the colors you chose with turquoise was great. I would make myself a necklace from the same concepts. They used to have glass beads like those about 20 years ago . . . I will be uploading a necklace i made around that time soon. The late Arleen gave me most of the beads in that necklace. Beautiful!!!!
