In honor of my trip to the beach, I’ve made a sea glass necklace!
A piece of purple sea glass is wrapped in silver wire and placed on a store-bought silver-plated chain.
Simple, easy, and beachy! Can’t wait to wear it to go beachcombing.
As promised, here is the bowl that I painted as a gift for my mom.
I used purple craft paint on the outside and gold enamel paint on the inside, two coats of each. I started using the same gold paint to do the lettering (after outlining first with black Sharpie) but then just used gold Sharpie to write the rest, which looked a LOT neater.
What a difference from how it first started out!
I’m a girl who just wants to have (crafty) fun.
I make jewelry, knit, and make greeting cards, mainly. Upcycling is a particular interest of mine, and my reason for collecting tin cans, buttons, and a whole manner of other things!
I may also post writing here from time to time, as that’s another (creative) interest of mine.
I hope to keep this fairly up to date if at all possible, but I regret to say that my track record with these types of things isn’t the greatest.
I hope you’re all ready to go on this blogging adventure with me!
