Sandy Beaches

About this design:

My inspiration for this was a quote by Sarah Kay. "There's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it is sent away".


2.25" Beadalon memory wire, Czech glass seed beads in satin blush, matte topaz AB, gold hex and sapphire blue. The little seahorse charm came from LB.

    Wonderful colors! I’ve also been putting seed beads on memory wire lately (glass markers, small rings), ouch, the skin on my thumb has started looking weird! Hope yours fared better!

    Love it, in fact… I love it so much, lol..I wish I had thought of it in my own head to make it. Being a big fan of “beachy” colors, it’s a winner! Well done
