Turtles by the Seaside ~ 52 Earrings: week 8

It's week eight of the 52 Pairs of Earrings a Year challenge and once again I'm scrambling to get something put together. I know, you all were probably expecting something totally fabulous like my Happy Returns last week, weren't you? Well, this week I have bead soup simmering on the stove and it's not leaving me much time for anything else.

So, for the second time (and I'm sure it won't be the last!) I dug deep into my polymer bead stash and found a few remnants: textured terracotta rondelles, bone rondelles and curved discs, and two seashells. To those I added frosted czech glass, ceramic rondelles, antique brass spacers and bead caps, and the cutest, little tiny brass turtles from Patina Queen on Etsy.

I'm dreaming of warm weather, the scent of sea salt, and sand in between my toes... and in the meantime I'm cooking bead soup!

Check out the Flickr pool here to see what everyone else mixed up for week eight.

See you next week with another pair!
