Bead Soup project #2 - I thought the clasp looked like shells, so I used it with a focal made by a friend. He made the seahorse out of copper and scrap silver. I love how he used the torch to get colors on the seahorse. I used the clasp and the flat greenish disk beads sent by my Bead Soup partner. I used random beads from necklaces salvaged from thrift store finds, one of my favorite sources for beads.
