Loving All Nautical Things

There is something about the ocean that inspires me to design.  I guess I find serenity in the sounds of the waves and the stillness of the sand.  So many tiny treasures lie beneath its grainy surface. I find pleasure in the simple things in life. A great magazine read while tanning beneath the sun’s hot and beaming rays. I wonder why I love the color yellow, shiny and bright like the sun. Its color brings warmth and laughter to my heart and I find myself drawn to gold metals. The color blue, but just not any blue, but the depth of navy, reminds me of nautical nights by the shore and a midnight stroll.  I find beauty in the natural things and pretty in the simple. IMG_7740

 I AM DRAWN TO ANYTHING THAT'S NAUTICAL IN TEXTURE AND STYLE.

 IF IT HAS A STARFISH, I AM LOVING IT!

How refreshing is the sea shore! The sandy beach with wonderful treasures and the scent of ocean waters attract my senses.  I often visit the ocean to envision new designs for my jewelry pieces.  I love the beauty of natural elements and its delicate nature. This piece is named Refreshing Aqua Quartz Glass Necklace.  I used the wire wrapping technique to add silver wire to the beautiful and soft aqua color of this glass quartz bead pendant. You can view this piece at my shop at http://www.catilla.etsy.com

Stitch by stitch and a bit of patience is what it takes to design this Boho Bohemian style wrap necklace.  A flax linen yarn full of minty colored freshwater pearl nuggets from the sea. I never thought of crochet as a hobby to be liked.  I found it tedious and somewhat complexed. Every stitch counts and the quality of the stitch makes such a difference in the outcome of the design. Throughout my designing years, I have taken a liking to natural fibers and natural bead elements to use in my designs.  After growing weary for a while, I finally found a new liking… Crocheting. This natural necklace is a handmade crochet wrapped necklace.  An absolute for Summer wear! This one is a reminder of the beach and it’s fine nature. This lovely wrap is available at my store http://www.etsy.com/listing/178491535/boho-minty-freshwater-pearl-crochet?ref=shop_home_feat_2Boho Minty Freshwater Pearl Wrap Necklace
