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

Stitch by Stitch

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
