I am so incredibly thankful for everything in my life right now--
my wonderful husband, my three sweet little babies, and my family
at large...my parents, siblings, Kalyn, Nonni, Poppi...and too many
other people to name...I love you all, and thank you for loving me!
Part of the joy of this birthday is all the fun I've had being more creative.
I've always thrived on creativity and art, and this blog (while young) is a
big part of that. Lately I've been exploring new forms of creativity, and it's
brought me so much pleasure. I'd like to celebrate that (and, ok, my birthday! :) by
Once upon a time, Japanese fisherman used glass balls
to keep their nets afloat while traveling the high seas.
They were made in shades of amber, aquamarine, amethyst,
and blue, with cranberry being the most prized because
gold was used to produce the color. Sometimes,
the glass orb would break free and float to the beach,
bearing distinctive patterns impressed upon it by the sand,
sun, salt, and water...
This bracelet is inspired by those magical orbs...the colorful
glass beads are a nod to those mystical glass floats that
continue to be searched for today. It features multi-colored
glass beads set among iridescent clear beads and small
silver spacers. A gold-and-sparkling-green Swarvorski crystal
charm hangs near the clasp. Lovingly handmade, this
bracelet is imbued with the magic of the sea.
