Who doesn't love bead shopping on the beach? Really! What's better than having beautiful beads brought to your doorstep?!?! Vendors at the beach walk around with their baskets of sunglasses, fruits, and my personal fav, pearls and funky shell jewelry. The last time I was at the beach, I only brought home a few bracelets. Not this time! Check out my loot!
Needless to say, I stocked up. I will stash a few pieces away for gifts and the rest I will cut up and use the parts. Those green shells in the front are calling my name right now, "Charm bracelet, charm bracelet."
It's always fun to use beads that remind you of a place you visited. I will associate these with the sounds of waves, the sandy beach, my friends, the cabin where we stayed and so on. Even though they didn't cost a fortune, I know whatever I make with them will be a treasure of beach-side memories.
