Michelle Ballard Artfire Studio

We would like for you to met our newest member Michelle Ballard from
Camano Island, Washington - United States

"Mom of five here.. and as they grow and move out I am finding myself with lots more time on my hands. I love spending time walking on the beach, near my house and I love making jewelry.. I am having a lot of fun putting both of these loves together and making jewelry from the treasures I find on the beach :)"
This is a beaded book mark that is just over ten inches long with about two inches of beads/glass on each end. Total length is 14 inches. Brown and black beads with a couple of light colored wooden beads and a piece of brown sea glass on each end

This Sea Glass bracelet is made with 4 pieces of sea glass that I found while walking on the beach. Each one was brought home and washed and then I soldered around each piece.

My fav is the Bracelet, but they are both beautiful! How wonderful to combine your two loves. I'm a new guild in Northern Idaho. I too love the beach, but Lake Pend Orielle is a good substitute!
