Multi-strand Shell Necklace

by Carmi Cimicata
 
Materials: Bead tips, connectors and beads (see below)
 
 
I have had this huge assortment of shells on my table for weeks.  Realizing it was AUGUST I was suddenly wanting to create something ASAP to wear before summer was over.
 
 
I also had a package of three hole connectors that I have never used.  It was time for me to stop thinking single strand only!
 
 
I created a collage of strands.
 
The finished piece!  All it needs is a clasp and chain.
 
 
These are shell beads – OVAL w/Centre Hole and I used the light gold.
 
These are called shell dice!  They are available in nine colours!
 
These irregular shell beads with holes are also in many colours.  I have used pink and purple already.  This is the natural strand.
 
Navette Shape Shell strands come in eleven different colours.
 
I could not resist adding a little Swarovski crystal.
 
I used 100% silk bead cord to string all my shells. I think I can say I am finally out of my single strand box!
