Take me back to Belize

About this design:

I bought this heart pendant from a street vendor while on vacation in Belize last February. It has taken me a while to find the right beads for the feeling of the beach that I wanted to create.


Conch shell heart pendant, White Opal chips and pink opal rounds from LB, champagne FWP, gold beads and rose glass seed beads.

    Gorgeous combination. I had to look up Belize which is a good thing because I read a lengthy item on it on wikapedia. I learned something today. That is a good thing.
