Coconut shell flower pendant, real shells and glass beads that look like shells? This is definitely a beach inspired necklace. I didn't have sand for the background but some beach type paper with flip flops in the top left corner and the sandcastle in the bottom right will have to do!

This is the creation of Olivia, who is ten years old. She made it for her mother. Olivia used quite a variety of beads - seed beads, bicones, daggers, metallic gold faceted crystal rounds as well as those I already mentioned above.

She demonstrates here that there are no rules to what you can use to put together a jewelry piece but it must please the wearer. I'd say Olivia's mission was accomplished because her mother liked it!
