Multi-strand Shell Necklace
by Carmi Cimicata
, 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
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
100% silk bead cord
to string all my shells. I think I can say I am finally out of my single strand box!
