Fruit de Mer

Posted on Jul 19, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 4 comments

This is one of the projects I have been working on.  We shipped out first batch of the paper bead kits, Kayla patiently sorted them out and made sure everyone got paper beads from all the 18 participants.  The rest of them will ship tomorrow.  You know the feeling when the party has almost come to an end and you did not want to part yet with your new found friends?  Well, let’s just go party at another friend’s place, house, blog?  In the mean time, you will see projects that I have been working on, and this is one of them.  I call it Fruit de Mer, because to me that’s what it is, even with the red paper beads nestled inside the shell.

A great way to wear your paper bead creations is to mix and match with your other jewelry.  This has a bail big enough for gold omega wire to go through and it looks nice layered with gem stone necklace.

What is nice about this kind of shell, it is reversible, the back is just as pretty as the front of the shell.

This will also look pretty hanging on an organza ribbon
