Happy 4th!

Life has been really busy lately - we are in the process of moving and that is a real pain in the you know what!

But this week we are at the beach which is FUN.  For tonights festivities, I got flag t-shirts for the whole family and decided to make some Independence Day themed jewelry to match.

First off I did some earrings with some simple peyote stars:

I didn't want to stop there and wanted a bracelet too. 

So I thought that Kristen's Pop Up Pearls would be a perfect for some Independence Day themed jewelry.  Each day this week I did a couple components...

Assembly time!!

I was thrilled to see I had some blue stars in my stash before I left for the beach!! 

I also received my inspiration beads from Heather at Humblebeads for the Jewelry Designs from Nature Challenge!  The reveal has been pushed back to the 11th of July....
 And I'm so excited that I was given the sea as my inspiration, since I am so near the sea right now!!  

Be sure to come by on the 11th for the reveal!!!
