Blue Striped Shell Earrings
These Blue Gray Striped Earrings are my most recent creation and now available for sale on Etsy. The instant I saw these shells while shopping for routine calligraphy supplies one day, I was drawn to them. I love using shells in my handmade jewelry, and the unique look of these was very interesting. The blue-gray iradescent shell with contrasting black stripes really draw the eye in and pop. I used a freshwater pear to offset the darkness of the shell and to make the earring glow. And, I am going to admit, the shell reminded me of cinnamon toast crunch.
Look at the cereal.
Now look at the earrings.
Not quite as delicious, and shameless, I know. But beautiful nonetheless. These are also just one of the hundreds of pairs I make every year, using all different stones and shells, pearls and quartz, and sell for a reasonable $10. So make your purchase on etsy or stay tuned for the craft show nearest you if local!
