Type of item: Accessory
Shells, glass and stone beads, Silver tone headpins and French earring wires, scrap pieces of Silver tone chain.
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a summer earring based on shells.
What are you most proud of?
The abstract bends in the headpin that holds the oval glass bead.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be patient with shells. Some of them will break, some of the holes might be too small. I ended up having to use E6000 glue to make sure the headpins stayed on the shells because of the openness of this particular shell.
