Crafturday Creative Mess 3 - Sea Shells on the Sea Shore

Beaches are like people-magnets; they are synonymous with fun and relaxation. Walking along the shore and looking for pretty shells is a fun activity enjoyed by both young and old beach-goers. Many people who spend time at the ocean want souvenirs to take back with them.
In this post i will explain you how to make a sea shell necklace.

Supplies you'll need:
Waxed cord
Sea shells with holes in them(natural or drilled)

First, lay out your beads in what you think you might like for a design. Of course, this can (and probably will) change according to how it looks with the shell, the arrangement, etc. I like to use naturally colored beads that go with the shells. Use whatever you think will look nice.

1.Measure out and cut a length of about 30″ of cord, or less, depending on your requirement.
2.Fold the cord in half.
3.Insert the loop end of the cord through the front of the shell.

4.Insert the loose ends of the cord through the loop.

5.Pull the loose ends through so the cord is snug against the shell.
6.String the other beads on each side of the cord.
7.Adjust bead order and quantity as required to make a nice-looking necklace.
8.Tie a knot at the end of loose cords.

now you have a souvenir to take back with you... specially if you dont live near the beach like me.
