About this design:

I purchased the pendants first, then went looking for beads to match on Lima. I decided to make a 3-loop memory wire bracelet with some of the remaining beads.


Z.E. beachy arc and triangle pendants, mosaic shell beads in sea green, white, and vermillion, goldstone beads, jump rings, crimp beads and covers, lobster clasp, bead wire, memory wire

    I love colorful pieces! So nice you could make a bracelet also. It takes me forever to get a necklace done–too much futzing around with them, I guess. Those Zola elements are great to design with.

    Summertime, summertime… I agree with Robin. Definitely meant to be worn with sun glasses, sun dress, flip flops and hat! Outstanding color choice and design.

    You are on a roll! Great to see so many of your creations. I am a fan of pendants and I love to see them combined with bead necklaces. You did a fine job echoing the colors.

    My thanks to all of you! I am retired, so I have a lot of time on my hands especially because of the pandemic. I don’t sleep to well so I keep busy. I get an idea and will put items in lunch bags for each project until I’m ready to create something…sometimes I may even change it as I go along. Lol it’s not unusual for me to make 4 to 6 pieces a day.
