On the eighth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me...
An antique bronze sea glass bracelet
(You can view the listing here)
I collected this piece of sea glass on one of my first trips to the ocean just to look for sea glass. This piece is probably from a small brown bottle, because of the curve that it has.
I tried using it as a pendant but it didn't lay right and kept turning. One morning my daughter was playing with the sea glass and put this piece on her wrist...and I had an "a-ha!" moment! Sea glass is beautiful as a necklace and earrings...why not a bracelet?
This bracelet is still one of my favorite pieces. I had to figure out how to have a loop at both ends of the sea glass but not have the wire wrapping become the focus of the bracelet.
I also created infinity links in the same type of wire (but a thicker gauge) to help showcase the sea glass.
It's already week 2 of December...what special holiday plans do you have for this week? We are getting our Christmas tree and decorating it. I can't wait!
