Wire wrapped, glass necklace :]
I had some colorful glass for quite some time now and really had no clue what to do with it. Well I found it. These necklaces are simple just wrap some wire around the glass, add a jewelry ring and your ready.

I went to South Haven this summer and found about 40 pieces of sea glass. I will have to try this.

Thank you so much, you could even use different rocks instead of glass. I think that would look very nice also.
