Featured :: ZnetShows Sea Glass

Sea glass from ZnetShows is still on my bead table! But I am coming to the end of the amazing stash Bill sent my way.

I love these diamond shaped ones. They have such a softness to the edges of the glass, and really do look like they were tumbled by the sea. 

I love the simplicity of how the orange hue from the glass comes through the etched leaves. I wanted to lock the pattern in place by wire wrapping both the charm and the glass together. A simple double wire wrap. 

If you want to give a double wrap a try, you can find my tutorial on this technique in one of my posts from last Fall, along with a few examples.

I greatly admire people who use the words "Simple" and "Wire" in the same sentence. Because I never can.
These are really sweet earrings! I love the colors and the ease.

Those are just gorgeous!!!!! Love the wraps!
And I remember that tutorial...you did for me, and you didn't even know me well then! Do you know how sweet you are?
And my wrapping skills are still horrid. I am the messy wrap queen as of now ;)

How cool! I love what you did to the pottery so you can still see the design. They are going to make a great gift.

I love the colors together. Well done!

This was a foreclosed property, so the previous owners were pretty mad. They even took the stove burners and some other parts! But yes I have an oven finally :)

Happy Birthday to your hubby and enjoy the weekend dear!
