I get inspiration from traveling the world over with my husband. Often times
I will come home from a trip
and design a bracelet that contains the hues of the area I just visited. On
a recent trip to Egypt we traveled
deep down the Nile River to Lake Nassar, almost to the Sudan border. One evening
at dusk, the stars
twinkled and the dusky desert colors were steaming with pinks, orange, black,
grey and gold shimmers.
The evening before, some young Nubian dancers came on board our boat and danced,
beating on drums,
their wrist and ankles flashing as the silver they wore reflected the evening
light.This was the inspiration for
the bracelet 'Nubian Night Sky'
I Hope you enjoy my pages,
In September of 2008 my husband and I moved back to the Seattle area. I found myself without a car in W Seattle just after moving. After a couple of months I decided to see just how long I could go without my car so I left it at our summer cabin. Well, a couple of months turned into a year! I walked, rode the bus and biked everywhere. I lost weight AND inches, met new friends, saw my neighborhood gardens and yards up close and in slow motion. I did not walk at a slow pace though. I walked to the store with my sturdy 20 year old backpack and carried it home on my back full of milk, produce, jugs of juice, rice and more! I often carried one to two full grocery bags in each hand. I also walked the beach almost every day on my way to the post office and at a slower pace I found lots of sea glass, I filled up flower vases, jars, bottles and anything that would hold my treasures. The bits of glass soon lined my window sills. I was pleased to see hardly any trash.
