It's Time to Visit the Sea!

Some of my favorite time is spent on the beach.  I love the beaches of Maine where the beaches range from long strips of tan sand to tiny coves amidst the rocky Maine coast.  I can not image going for long stretches of time without being able to hear the crashing waves and smell that unique tangy ocean scent.  Fortunately, I live in Central Massachusetts and the ocean is no more than an hour's drive from my house and even the beaches of Maine can be visited with only an hour and a half drive.

That being said, I was glad to learn that this week's Smoosher's topic was "Every thing's a beach."  Polymer clay lends itself so well to replicating sea life and it can be used to fashion jewelry with a beachy flair.  I, myself, have made flip flop earrings and necklaces for summer or vacation wear and I'd like to share these other "beachy" items that I found in the shops of other Polymer Clay Smoosher's.

This gorgeous Sand Dollar Pendant can be found in BeadCombers shop.
This adorable Under the Sea Switch Plate Cover by Fantasy Clay would be perfect for a little girl's bedroom.
Starfish are an iconic symbol of beach life and this Lucky Starfish Necklace from Gem'sPCCreations is a lovely example of what can be created using polymer clay.
I found this OOak Sea Turtle in KaelMijoy's shop.  
And this Day On The Water Pendant by Valerie's Stuff brings the beach feel to everyday.
I'm sure I could go on and on finding fantastic beach themed items but I think I'll stop here.  I'm looking forward to visiting my favorite beaches again, now that the warmer weather has finally arrived. 


  1. These are some wonderful beachy selections! I love the beach and just being near water myself ;-)

  2. Super finds! I live only 40 minutes from the shore and sure wish I could get there more often, especially after seeing these.
