What's more summery than a day at the beach? While I've never seen starfish on the beach, I have seen a few tide pools! An actual starfish was used in making the mold for these beads. I have a collection of the tiniest starfish you've ever seen along with a few larger specimens here on the studio shelves. For this series, which started with a toggle clasp and pendant, I wanted to create the feeling of a little tide pool with a painted watery effect. They remind me of watercolor paintings.
A bracelet I whipped up using this new connector charm. I added in smoky quartz, citrine and resin along with brass.
