Calling all mermaids!

My hubby and I were recently on one of our road trips (yay!) and of course, we were blessed to see some beautiful scenery all along the way. This always inspires me :)

I always enjoy taking the ferry to cross from Vancouver Island to go to the main land. 
I love the sight of the ocean, the water, the sailboats, the whales, etc... 
Sometimes, I wish I could be a mermaid :)

So, of course, I was itching to get back to my bench and make some sea glass jewelry!
I made a few necklaces and I found a couple of chunks of glass that went well together,
enough to make this cute pair of earrings:

I love that they sort of match, but not fully match.
I added some cute sterling silver fish charms that I found in my stash,
purchased many years ago from FMG. 
(they were links originally,  but I removed the bottom rings to turn them into charms instead)
I wrapped them up to a pair of large rings and suspended them from
one of my pairs of handmade ear wires.
You can find these earrings HERE as well as other sea glass jewelry on my website.
Thanks for having a look!

  1. Lovely photos and you make it sound like a wonderful place. Delicious sea glass in super sweet earrings!

  2. Love the earrings Nathalie! A pair of Mermaid's Tears. Beautiful!

  3. Love the color of the glass- and the charms you used. Very cool that you re-made them into charms. Great job!! The silver is so pretty and bright! Looks great next to the pale green glass. Lovely!

  4. Thank you, my dears! Vancouver Island is definitely my magical place to be :)

  5. Beautiful glass, wonderful with the fish! I love your big wrapped links.

  6. Love these Nathalie! The sea glass is a gorgeous color and pairs so perfectly with the silver. :)
