My Love Affair With The Sea & How it Inpires Me...

Hello Beautiful Readers~ 

Is it nice out where you live? Today it's really warm in Island County, Washington! Blue skies and sun! About 68 degrees F. (that is very warm for me and where we used to live..on the east coast).

Went on a very vigorous power walk (love to exercise for body & mind) to one of my favorite beaches on the island. Needed a break from designing, photographing, writing and so on. It's amazing what the sea does for my soul. For as long as I can remember I've had a love affair with the sea. It is such a huge inspiration for my jewelry creations. When I was little, my family vacationed in Florida every summer for one month. I remember living in the ocean or pool. Swimming in the sea..floating a mermaid.  For hours and hours. We also had a pool growing up. Nothing super fancy. Just a nice pool. If you live in California, chances are you have a swimming pool!

So, when I wasn't in Florida for one month, the rest of the summer, I was in our backyard pool with my neighbor (a dear friend I still am in contact with, don't you love those friends you've had forever. The ones that have known you since you were a little girl and are like family always. She's the best). We were always swimming, diving, sloshing around like elegant fish.  The vacations in Florida were such a highlight growing up. I had the sea and the sea had me! I loved the sand between my toes, the lukewarm turquoise water, the gentle waves, the salty delicious fragrance that only the sea can have.... My love for the ocean sprouted...and from then love affair grew....

My favorite beach on the island where we now live. Where I find many of the seashells I am using in several of my new necklaces.
