Custom Pieces Rock!
After my last post about the family visit to the beach and subsequent glass vessel pendant containing beach sand, a customer requested a similar piece with sand from the place she got married.
And so I took my mom and kids to Indian Rocks Beach for some "market research" and shell collecting.
We snagged the perfect FREE parking spot with a shower near the car! SCORE!
The weather was the usual HOT but a nice breeze kept us cool and the water temperature was just the way I like it :)
I just happened to spy the most amazing dream house with a pool, fake grass, white and orange chaise lounges and walls adorned with Audrey Hepburn.... (what must I do to live in a place like this???)

So, we all spent a few hours picking out the brightest and biggest coquinas from the THOUSANDS of squirming snails in the surf. These will be used for future jewelry and art projects!
Then, I used a fine mesh bag to get a handful of perfectly white beach sand.
Four very special coquinas were chosen to hide in the sand. A few taps and as the sand disperses, you can peek at these little guys.
A special thanks to Stacey for her continued support. Our whole family really enjoyed making your necklace.
