Bracelet of the Month April 2013 - Milk Glass with Etched Seaweed

It's been a while since my last post, but I have been very busy, which is a good thing I suppose. But the time has come for my monthly bracelet challenge! Last month I made my first sea glass bracelet (rainbow) - and this month I used sea glass again - baby blue milk glass.

Unlike 'regular' sea glass - milk glass goes smooth, with no pits. It is very tactile and I had to try and make something with it. The pieces are all the same colour, so to add some variety, I etched a seaweed pattern on all of the bezels. Each one painted individually, with a few fish hiding here and there as well. They are much too small to be visible (I was using a magnifier when I painted them) , but I know they are there!
