The theme for week 17 Year Of Jewelry is Water Worn. First thing that comes to mind is beach glass...but...it's one item I lack in my stash.
Instead...I found some Bali sterling silver seashells.
After I finished weaving the sterling silver frame together...the shells were suspended from the frame with a freshwater pearl at their base.
To capture shades of the oceans, I've added beautiful apatite in various shades.
The finishing touch is three gorgeous pearl drops from the bottom of the earring. They are from www.magpiegems.com
