Sea Glass Jewelry Giveaway

I don't know about you, but I love sea glass!  While visiting Israel this year, I took many walks on the beach near my son's home, while my grandchildren took their naps. While taking those walks, I found a lot of sea glass. This year for Christmas, I've been making jewelry using these treasures, and I'm giving these creations as gifts to friends and family (hopefully I didn't spoil the surprise). I think it's a symbolic way to give a gift that is from the same country where Jesus was born. 

If you want to learn to wrap glass, this is a really good youtube video that taught me how to do it.
And because it's the holidays, I've made a couple extra to give as gifts to my readers. Interested? Here are the RULES:

Thank you to all those that participated.

Here's an interesting tale about sea glass:
"In the old days, and I mean the old days, because sea and beach glass has been around as long as we have had glass, it was said to be "Mermaid Tears". It was said that every time a sailor drowned at sea, the Mermaids would cry and the sea glass was their tears washing up on the shore." from Beach Glass Jewelry Website
