Shell and Sand Dollar Earrings

Hey Everybody!  I’m writing this post on my birthday!  I’m celebrating my creative efforts! I’ve been designing shell earrings.  I use dyed mother-of-pearl shells.  Then, I glue real, tiny shells or tiny sand dollars to the shell.  I add a complementary bead to the design, also. I’m finding that the flat shells work best.  I love working with blues and purples!
