More Colors, 14K Gold & Sterling Silver

I have been very busy and very lucky. First of all, I found the most beautiful little piece of peach sea glass, and before I even got home, I stopped at my mom's to say "Hi" and she claimed this for her own.

Now, she has never asked for a sea glass necklace before, she said she was waiting for the right piece, and I guess that little peach one was it. But she wanted it wrapped in gold, which I have never used before, so I ordered some from fellow Etsy sellers Lanna's Jewelry Chest and also Thunder Moon Supplies and produced these! The two blues are wrapped in sterling silver and the rest are wrapped in 14K gold filled wire. I can't wait to show it to her. I think it will look nice with her coloring.

The other bit of good fortune I had was that my step-mother Andree was generous enough to share her sea glass collection with me. She and my Dad have been collecting for years and they live on a great sea glass beach, and she is very particular about the condition of the glass she picks up. So this was a huge treat for me. Thank you Andree!

And the last positive thing that happened is that my grandmother very kindly purchased 6 necklaces to give as gifts. Most of the items from my last post including the Wampum necklace.

You can see from all of the pictures I took that I can't get enough of looking at all of these pretty colors! I feel so lucky to be surrounded by so many warm and generous women, in this case my mother, my step-mother and my grandmother. Thank you!
