Tropical Coral Reef Earrings

Tropical Coral Reef Earrings with kelly green sea glass and handmade pure silver coral reef elements.

Here they are! The earrings I blogged about earlier this week in the Under Nature's Spell post. These earrings celebrate the beauty of coral reefs and sunlight shining through banana leaves. I am really happy with the way they came out. The coral reef elements are pure silver and I used a piece of coral that we found on a beach in Rincon, Puerto Rico to create a beautiful organic coral reef texture. We also found the kelly green sea glass on a beach in Rincon, Puerto Rico. Kelly green sea glass always makes me think of beautiful banana leaves that are illuminated by tropical sunlight. Tropical Coral Reef Earrings

A Free Gift Of Seashells With Every Piece Of Jewelry

We found these seashells on Sanibel Island, Florida.

If you have ordered from us before then you already know that we include a free packet of seashells with every piece of jewelry in your order. We love to spoil our customers with beautiful beach found treasures. We just got back from a five day beach combing adventure in Sanibel and Captiva in Florida and have replenished our seashell supply. 

Under Nature's Spell

I am heading into the studio today and my head is full of tropical visions and images. As I was falling asleep last night I was thinking about coral reef shapes and textures and the beautiful sea creatures that live in coral reef ecosystems. Then my mind drifted to images of sunlight shining through vibrant green banana leaves and how beautiful it is to be greeted by such a sight while emerging from the sea. I am always under nature's spell and I will be working on a pair of earrings today that are inspired by tropical visions that always seem to be dancing in my soul.

New Bracelets Are On The Way

These sea glass bracelets were handmade by Lisl Armstrong

Our studio is bustling with creative energy! New bracelets with sea glass and seashells that we collected in Puerto Rico, Tahiti, Bali and England and some from California that was sent to us by a friend. The beads are recycled glass beads from Ghana. I designed these bracelets for the modern day sea goddess!

Beautiful Girl

Ruby Armstrong our beautiful Australian Cattle Dog

Our sweet girl Ruby passed to the other yesterday. She was here at home surrounded by people she loves and an incredibly caring and compassionate vet. Moments after she crossed over we went out into the yard and a large orange butterfly came towards us. It circled around again and flew over the room where our sweet girl was. The sky was an intense blue and the flowers in our garden became luminously vibrant moments after she started her travels. Peace, Love and Freedom to you beautiful Ruby!
