Tie Dye Shell Jewelry


"This project is a perfect project for beginners! Use Sharpie markers to draw into shells, then blend the colors with hand sanitizer for a unique tie dye look! I then show you how to use these shells to make simple drop necklaces and a charm bracelet. The time to create these pieces is about an hour. What I love about the tie dye is that no two shells will be the exact same! A great way to bring the tie dye trend into the accessories world!"
