Art Bead Scene: The Mermaid's Grotto 8...

I had to take a little break from making things for the Art Bead Scene challenge, The Mermaid's Grotto. I just had to deal with some other more pressing matters. However, here is a new one. It's a quickie, but I think a goodie.

I used pieces of beach glass that my sister, Sheila hand-drilled. The tumbled serpentine and pearls came from Talisman Associates Inc., the fine pewter mermaid pendant came from my family (Green Girl Studios), and the Swarovski crystals came from Fusion Beads. I got the chain from a store in Raleigh, NC called Ornamentea.

Definitely a goodie. There's something so poetic in the way you put the elements together. I've been wanting to teach myself how to drill stones...I really like the drilled beach glass...she did a nice job on them.

I'll write soon, too.

Hey Kateri,

I will sometimes sell pieces, but I mostly do design work for magazines and for samples for my family's company, Green Girl Studios. I'm so blessed to be apart of such a creative family that's supportive and encouraging! I love working with their components!
