In the Shallows by Ellygator In the Shallows by Ellygator
(2016), 9"x4", Size 15 seed beads and size 11 seed beads worked in Ndebele stitch, closure beads, focal glass art beads, fireline.

Well, this is my vacation souvenir for this year! Spent two weeks on the beach in Florida and took this little project along with some nice sand-beiges and seafoam greens. I absolutely adore the little curls on the focal bead - remind me of little rolled-up seahorse tails!

If you want to learn how to makes these you can find the instructions or pattern here.

I haven't had much luck putting my beadwork on Etsy. However, I'm always happy to talk commissions!

I see a startled Octopus face with the dots and the squiggles (in one direction) and maybe a perplexed sea king (in the other direction). Fits perfectly with the ocean theme either way. Very lovely!
