This issue is full of wonderful Summer inspired designs (jewelry and non jewelry). Lots of cultured “sea glass beads” are used in these designs.
This issue also includes summer color pallets, suggestions of great summer songs, and tons of inspiration!

I created non jewelry designs for this issue – a jewelry box and another little item that I created using left over ICE Resin.

Here are the beautiful “sea glass beads” I received from ZnetShows to create my designs with:

I used two Brass Leaves, Leaf stamping fig09727. One for the bracelet focal then I cut another one into three pieces for the earrings and necklace. Color was added to the stampings then I added a little of Preciosa Crystal Rhinestone Chain to each piece.

Check out the B’sue Boutiques Creative Group Challenges on Pinterest for lots of inspiration by all the members.
