After Beach Collection

It's been a while since I stopped by!!!
My inspiration for these designs came  from the ocean , sea, river, lakes, and the waters of our planet! 

I made this pair by sorting all my kuchi belly dance charms that I have been collecting for 6 or 8 years now. I used a pair of glazed hooped connectors which were hand formed in earthstone and fired with bronze clay and raku lime glaze.  I then dangled a variety of beads, from vintage to modern.

I love the indigo colour on this pair of earrings!

Yellow brass is hammered against an old railroad spike for a unique texture that is slightly curved then tumbled and treated with an indigo patina.  I simply topped the 2 inch by 9mm hammered Brass spears with a rustic blue denim handamade lampwork and a Tibetan pearl. 

Larimar stone and handmade sea inspired lampwork beads along with antique silver beads and chain.
I like the fresh tranquil soothing blues of Larimar, it reminds me of the Caribbean sea.
Did you know that Larimar can only be found in the Domican Republic?

I made this necklace very simple, which is not in my usual style, but this gorgeous lampwork bead didn't need much. I added red agate gemstones here and there to keep it simply stated.

As always, Thank you so much for stopping by!
