Our recent trip to Bermuda inspired me to add some of those beachy bold and natural elements into my line. I searched for weeks to purchase large shell beads on-line and finally found some through Beads and Pieces. The creamy donut-shell beads are shipped from the Phillipines. I used ivory mother of pearl diamond shaped shell beads, milky white and gold pearls, polished brown wood beads and champagne colored faceted crystal rondelle beads. I often use natural colors of flowers, trees and of the environment to inspire some of the color combinations I use in my jewelry.
Have you ever been inspired by your natural surroundings to create your own personal style and if so, how?
