Echo Creative Club

Can you believe it is the third month of this

Jeannie of jkdjewelry started this in January
and I was lucky enough to be able to play.

So, this month I got one of her wonderful 
polymer sand dollars.
(I have been drooling over these for a loooong while now)

Love this. 
I knew that I wanted to create something simple and peaceful
while  doing justice to Jeannie's wonderful piece.

I had a good idea of what I wanted, it was just coming up with the
materials needed.  Nothing a quick trip to my LBS wouldn't cure.

Once I had everything, it all came together really 
quickly and I am loving this piece.

Antiqued brass chain, hand wrapped amazonite, czech crystals, green and turq. glass pearls 
along with Jeannie's wonderful polymer sand dollar. It has a simple lobster claw clasp.

Thank you Jeannie, for allowing me to play.

Please visit the below blogs to see 
what amazing pieces the others have created.

Beautiful! The mix of turquoise and green with the copper and beautiful sandy color of the pendant makes me wish I was sitting on the beach listening to the ocean! Love it!!

That looks like it deserves to be walking along a beach someplace in a sweet little sundress and strappy sandals! I love this! The blues are the perfect foil to the sandy beige. I love her sand dollars and have a few myself. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration. Enjoy the day.

I love how you gave the necklace movement ... those dangles will move around that sand dollar just as the ocean would. Beautiful!

Molly Alexander said...

I am a huge fan of 'danglies', and I love how you used them in such bright colors to compliment Jeannie's sand dollar focal. What a wonderful, summery necklace! :)

You've really done a great job of complimenting that sand dollar well. That necklace looks like it was meant to be!
