The Tides


I picked up a strand of mosaic turquoise over Mother's Day weekend this year. The colors and pattern reminded me very strongly of the way sunlight filters through water, so I decided to combine the stones with some small drilled pieces of shell and finished the piece with one of my sea pendants and a rough cut ceramic bead by Diane Hawkey.

Can you believe it's already August? And we've only had a handful of days where I live that were really hot enough to spend at the pool.

Thanks for visiting.

Summer goes too fast! Wait until your little one is older - it's like we didn't even have summer! Beautiful necklace, and beautiful stones!

Thanks, guys!

Sue - I know! It's already hard for me to see him growing up so fast - and he's still pretty little.
