Clips and Stones

Hello Friends!
Thank you all so much for the Welcome Back wishes...it is so nice coming home to you :)

While I was away, we did brief stops at 2 of my favorite beach combing spots.
We were able to collect some wonderful new pieces of sea glass, pottery, driftwood...


...shells...


...and stones.


Sorting them made we want to dive right in and make more hair clips! 
So I did...heehee :)


I just love the crackling that aged pottery gets...and the pale green of that one glass piece is incredible.


I thought these lime zest colors looked like Summertime in clip form :)


I really like how the copper wire coordinates with the little shell in the middle.


I think this is my favorite...that one piece of pottery has a great sunshine yellow enamel still on it.


...but then there's this lovely clip...those blue and green slivers are so subtle, and yet, so special.  I do like this one a lot, too :)

...and then there's the stones.


Isn't it stunning?

...and take a look at these lucky finds <3



Can't be too lucky or find too much love :)

I am having a Christmas In July SALE at ye olde shoppe.  All these creations are currently on the shelves, if you are interested :)

I haven't had any epiphanies on what to do with the driftwood I've collected yet...
Do...



...have any ideas? 

Well, off to the Vet's to pick up Sally from spay surgery....then need to take Maggie to Karate class...
Busy, busy!
Big hugs,
Cameron

These are all so beautiful. I'm a bit jealous--"our" beach has shells and stones, but no sea glass or driftwood. Perhaps a mobile/wind chime type creation with the driftwood?

Gorgeous, I can just imagine beachcombing with you, I can never walk on a beach and NOT look down...and pick up stuff and carry it home ! You make lovely hairclips (I know, we've got one very pretty one ;) I also saw Diana Dias-Leao makes clothing with beachglass, check her out on the web ! That could be your next thing ;) Good luck with the cat and talk again soon xx

Your finds are amazing! And, I love what you did with them! You are talented!!

You should frame that driftwood, as is, on the white background like you've pictured it, in a shadow box. Just gorgeous. Once again, you make me wish I could tolerate jewellery and things in my hair more.

So gorgeous! All of it!

Michele said...

That green of the clip!!! So lovely. I like the way you turn treasure into better treasure. Clever clogs. xx

Amalia K said...

Blissful Pumpkin said...

Aha! I remember coming home with some similar items, however mine did not turn into lovely handmade beauties. My fav is the green one. Glad your back and I hope you are refreshed. Xo

Your hair clips are beautiful. I wish my hair was long enough to have one! I bet you were excited to pick these up.

Getrealmommy said...

Growing out my hair again, this time for real. I still have the clip you sent me and will be wearing it soon. I will probably be a customer soon!

Geri said...

Magaly Guerrero said...

What beauties! I'm so envious. I want to get out and collect stuff. Okay, so I won't be able to make the pretty things you make, but a girl can dream right?

Devon said...

We have piles of sea glass and treasures that we collect everytime we go to the beach. We never come home empty handed! Even my beloved who moans at our collections finds the odd treasure now! :)
