On another hiatus from creating beaded flowers, I created this cute nautical box. It has a faux closure of a piece of driftwood surrounded by shells. Below you can see a close-up of the focal piece on the top. I made a beaded bezel to surround a fossilized sand dollar. Then I added a bezel of small shells and finally a bezel of braided jute. It is available in my Etsy shop.
I may take a break now & then from creating beaded flowers, but almost always I am still using beads!
