Unchain My Heart Sea Glass Necklace
My husband is the sea glass collector for me, when he occasionally takes a trip into Sydney to ride on the trains and ferries.
He has found quite a few pieces on some of the inner harbour beaches, and he picked up this piece one day recently.
I was busy when he got home, so it was a couple of days before I looked through the small stash he brought home.
I saw this heart-shaped piece and knew I had to put a bezel around it.
I decided to combine three of my favourite materials, and used polymer clay to make the bezel, and a chainmaille weave called 6-in-1 spiral to make the chain.
Although it does have the slightly sharp edge in the cleft of the heart, I still think it works and is a nice jewellery piece.
