Sea Glass Necklace

I found this piece of Sea Glass on the beach when I was at Klaloch earlier this month. I love it's shape and decided to use it in a necklace for a solder swap on Art-Venturers. Because it is cloudy, I decided to use a bold contrast paper under the glass. The paper is from a Worksheet Wonder I made similar to this post. I used Liquid Glass to attach the paper to the sea glass.
Has an ethereal appearance.
Stamped an image on top of the sea glass with Azure blue StazOn ink and heat set.
On the back, glued on another piece of the same Worksheet Wonder to the back of the sea glass and covered it with Liquid Glass.
Soldered around the uneven edges (so much fun) and added jump rings. Added large silver bead on the top with the cording. Added small blue beads and a silver key charm to the bottom jump ring. The photo doesn't show off the dimensional aspect of the images and the glass very well. The appearance changes as it moves in the light.
Reverse side. I think this necklace looks great on both sides.

Very intriguing. I really like the subtle mysterious look on the front.
Perfect for a Mermaid.
