Mermaid Shell Necklace

Project Level-easy to moderate
Project List Shells
1.iridescent beads-Joanns or other craft stores

3.pearl beads other types of beads that are oceanic like

Sorry the pictures aren't so great but this is the Mermaid Shell Necklace that I was working on and finished for awhile. I wanted something big but more natural than the plastic crap at the stores. Using an already made necklace made out of hemp like string and brown beads on it, I added to it.

I used the fishing line(mono-filament) to string up small shells, pearls and translucent beads on it. I used another string and strung up more beads and including my bigger shells on it. I did a strung up version of coral by stringing some small pearls on then at the top -go down the same strand of beads, skipping the top bead, and then continue doing the same thing through out the necklace to give a coral look. I tied it off at the end to the necklace that I used.
I have a picture of necklace I was looking for here
