Beach Inspired Gifts

A friend ordered a couple of necklaces made of seed beads in vibrant colors with shells as souvenirs for a beach party. I made 20 pcs last week and everything turned out to be nice and dainty. I had a couple of rundowns with following the 16 in and 18 in length but eventually got the hang of it.

Here they are:

As for the packaging, I made medium sized envelopes using my DCWV retro stack. I even made a tag where my friend could put each gal's name or initial on it to personalize the gift.

Many thanks Carmen for these. I had fun making them even more happy with conceptualizing the project with you.
