That said, I was one of the group of designers for ZNet.com asked to participate in designing some jewelry for their upcoming on-line 'zine and received a bunch of lovely beads to work with. Me being me, I made earrings. I love earrings. I think I've mentioned before how much I love earrings because they are so feminine and swing-y. Here's what I managed to create using ZNet's recycled sea-glass beads (and some of my own). Enjoy! )Also, here's the link to the On-Line E'Zine and a link to the sea-glass page on ZNet's web site)
|Clockwise from top: Dolphins, teal sea-glass|
tubes and sea-foam pearls, light blue starfish
and baby blue tulip-style beads all of
recycled sea-glass and a few of my own beads.
|Top right; black recycled sea glass, multicolored|

Bottom left; teal sea glass tubes, orange sea glass,
garnet pearls on copper wire.
|Top right; pearls in black, gray, & white with|
red sea glass and red crystal accents.
Bottom left; red and blue sea glass, white

|Top to bottom; two green sea glass squares,|
teal sea glass tubes; green sea glass square,
yellow Czech glass squares; green sea glass,

(addendum) I wrote this right after I made these and I've since made several more earrings from ZNet's sea glass. I'll post them later.
