Sand Dollar Earrings

As I mentioned in a previous post, I had leftover beads from the Sand Dollar Necklace.  The two small glass rings and sand dollars seemed begging to be made into earrings.  From the necklace chain I had two extra links but they didn't match....oh well?......who says they have to matchy match?  Using Vintaj wire, I wired wrapped the parts together and felt very pleased with the artsy outcome.  It has the exact beach-combed- look that I was after.  Not only does it make a good set with the necklace, these earrings can be worn with many other pieces of shell jewelry which are very popular right now.  This earring only took a few minutes of my time and used up leftover supplies (some made from recycled glass) so I think this is a WINNER project (if I do modestly say so myself) hahaha!  I hope you'll check out HM Ben Franklin Crafts and see what your creative mind can be inspired to do.

Lynn, the green sea glass earrings I purchased from you at the store got stolen! Did not know they were "missing" till I got back to LA! Is the other pair still available for purchase? Please contact me at tomisatokanda@yahoo.com. I usually do not give out CTC on sns however, these earrings were "special". I love sea glass and sand dollars!
