More Beachy Bohemian Jewelry

{Bohemian Jewelry} : jewelry for a layed back summertime look
{looks great with a white T and khaki shorts}

Each of these pieces of jewelry are one of a kind, I never make 2 of exactly the same thing.

{a pocketful of beach}

This 20 inch necklace is composed of 2 handmade fiber cords and one glass and shell beaded strand. The leather heart measures 2.25 inches long and has been handsewn with a pocket containing 2 tiny shells and a little leather starfish.

{come sail away with me necklace}
Ahhhh, the feel of the wind in your hair, the soft lapping of the water on the sides of the boat and the warm sun bathing your shoulders in golden rays........sailing! You might just feel like this even if you're stuck on dry land when you wear this charming sailboat necklace. This necklace measures 17 inches long and is composed of a handmade fabric cord in subtle light blue with khaki stitching and a white cord knotted with horn beads and mother of pearl beads. A metal starfish and orange (the sun) shell bead dangle from the upper corner of the heart.

{the hidden seahorse necklace}
I've always been captivated by these wonderful little creatures! They are so shy and elusive hidding in among the seaweed. This necklace is 16 inches long and is composed of 4 strands: a dark brown suede cord, 2 blue cords and a beaded strand of glass beads and wooden beads. The heart is made of leather and has been painted and sealed, the seahorse is metal with 2 danglies hanging from his curly-Q tail.

{the key to my summertime heart necklace}

This necklace is 18 inches long created on a handsewn turquoise fabric cord with apple green stitching, the antique skeleton key is 2.5 inches long and has been painted with a shimmery light aqua paint reminiscent of water sparkling in the sunlight. A blue 1.75 inch long leather heart has been embellished with very tiny text. A metal starfish and dangly with glass beads hangs beneath it.

{shell collector bracelet}

Who could not resist walking on the shore and not filling your pockets with shells? This bracelet is a tribute to "the shell collector". This is a smaller bracelet that measures 7 and 3/4 inches long (for those of you out there with freakishly small wrists like me!). It has been composed of 4 strands, one handmade fabric cord, one light brown suede cord, one dark brown waxed cotton cord and one beaded strand of copper metal noodles, glass seed beads, white Howlite beads and 4 real shells. Pop this baby on and let the beachcombing begin!

Hey, thanks for looking a pop back again in a few days as I'll be posting more beachy goodies!
