I had been featured in a recent Etsy treasure for glass headpins and in this treasure were some textured glass headpins. A few days later I was walking home from the store and this beach themed idea popped into my head using this textured design element. I ran home and doodled the idea in my sketch book to try the next day in my studio.
You know how designs go, one thing led to another... I started out with the small "beach egg" design, then the focal size, and then decided to take that wonderful theme and add it to a lovely large lentil focal size. I just adore this design with it's starfish, ripply spiral tide pool and rough textured elements :D
WHAT TO MAKE?
This large focal would make a lovely center piece for a necklace paired with some semi-precious stones, Czech glass, and pearls.
