By the Sea

by: Jennifer Tough

One more this week inspired entirely from a single bead. This one of course is the stunning focal. A borosilicate glass scallop bead in cobalt shimmer. It's a deep blue cobalt with a gorgeous aqua dichroic shimmer.

I kept it simple as I wanted the scallop to take center stage. I used three strands of size 8/0 seedbeads to ensure the 'chain' was large enough to support the focal bead - which is quite large.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a 'sea' themed clasp - so let's just pretend that's a sea flower ;-)
