After stringing this beach rock necklace, I decided I did not find it very interesting. Too symmetrical, or predictable.  I like the peanut-shaped glass seed beads, but not necessarily with the beach rocks in this design.

I took the necklace apart and used some of the same beach rocks in a different sequence, with additional beach rocks and different handmade silver beads. I’m a lot happier with this one.

Sometimes I have to make necklaces I don’t like, before I can make the ones I do like.

  1. I really like this one? Is it for sale? You’re right – the second version speaks to me more too!

      Thanks Carla. Yes it is for sale! I just hadn’t done all the photos to put it up on Etsy, and I wasn’t sure if it was going in with some work I am sending to a gallery on Deer Isle, so it’s not listed anywhere yet. Send me an e-mail if it is something you might be interested in.


  2. Love the asymmetry! Amazing, the difference in “feel” from the first way you strung it. I am more drawn to artful, less predictable and playful feel of the new arrangement. Just beautiful!
