i'm on holidays at the moment and enjoying more time to get creative. tired of waiting for the carpenter to drill shells for me, i've learnt to use a power drill, so that's a good thing.
using some of my favourite materials, threading shells and beads onto string is quite therapeutic. these are some items i've added to my etsy shop.
i hope you enjoy your weekend!
Now, I wish I had a beach themed Christmas tree. It is so hard to find custom garland for Christmas trees. I love the strands in the second and fifth photo. They look like necklaces.ReplyDelete
Those are beautiful!ReplyDelete
They are so beautiful!!ReplyDelete
I had to laugh about the drilling through the shells...I used make pinecone garlands, and vividly remember all of the drilling and stringing! It is theraputic once you get into the groove.
Have a great weekend!
wow, what you could do with beautiful garland like that! love the bits of turquoise and teal!ReplyDelete
So many pretty pieces, you are inspiring me to drill~ReplyDelete
I love love these, you did a beautiful job! Power tools are so fun!!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your holiday and weekend!!
Oh - I must get a dremel tool. Truthfully, I hardly ever pick up traverse arks & they are so abundant on my beaches because I just never saw anything interesting to make with them.....until now. Just gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Wow - love the look. You did an amazing job. Beautiful!!! Love this look.ReplyDelete
I love the colors here, it makes me want to take a walk on the beach. Your garland is beautiful, I love everything made with shells. Your blog is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
love your work Cheryl. you mean you can actually drill holes in shells? All these years i've been collecting shells with holes in them already. i really like your choice of stones and extras on the garlands, particularly the turquoise. It gives the garland a strong sense of spirit. Jane xReplyDelete
Cheryl, you've done a great job drilling these shells. I have done it before too and it is no easy task. Your garlands are beautiful. LeahxReplyDelete
I can be trusted with a power screwdriver, but I'm not sure about a power drill. Your shell garlands are lovely!ReplyDelete
Your shell garland is so very pretty and perfectly beachy! Stopping by from BNOTP Met Monday.ReplyDelete
