Summer Blues Oyster necklace

About this design:

These new beads from Limabeads are some of my favorites and I wanted to incorporate them with this oyster shell I decorated. I love it because I picked up this oyster shell while in Charleston.

    Your focal is super cool! The shell seems to be mostly flat. How did you get the pattern & coloring on it? The agate looks fantastic too. Very unique & pretty necklace.

    Love the use of the oyster shell focal! I really think you did a great job putting this together. Having grown up with oyster shells as pavement (you gotta put them somewhere!) I love how the recycling of them just morphs into new and wonderful ideas! Great Job!
