Sea Glass Necklace

 This summer my Mom, cousin and I went to Maine.  I discovered the addictive activity of searching for sea glass.  I came home with quite a collection of all sizes.....
 I decided to make a little some out of these pieces, so I went on the hunt of a way to create jewelry.  I saw quite a few different styles on the roads in New England, but I wanted to display some of my favorite pieces (the blue) in a necklace for my Mom's upcoing birthday.   I only had very tiny pieces of the blue.  After hunting down lockets, I found that most of the lockets out there only have enough room for a little piece of paper, but I found this company via a childhood friend of mine called Origami Owl.  Truly, just letting you know b/c I love it and not because I get anything for saying I love it....
 You can buy all sorts of charms to go inside, or to attach to the necklace, but I just bought a medium locket and I filled it with the sea glass.  I heart it.

My family used to go to Maine every year. Never was lucky enough to find any seaglass though. That necklace is gorgeous! I love the idea of putting something besides a picture in a locket. I might have to get one for the tiny seashells we have from our trip to Galveston this summer.
