Precious Turtle Beads

I'm working on some really cute beads lately. My neighbour keeps pet turtles and asked if I could make turtle beads for her daughter. It seems that I could. This is one of the first ones I made, and it is terribly precious. They've gotten a little bit bigger since this one, but they are still sweet as can be. I realized that I need to consider how folks might use these turtle beads in jewelry, and so future turtle beads will be tail-weighted a bit so that they will hang predictably as a pendant. The bead shown here would be lovely as a one-of-a-kind charm in a girly bracelet or an earring. Look for these cute beads to enter my etsy shop in the next few days.
