Feeling the soft wind over my warm skin as I hear the sound of waves rolling into shore is one of my favourite sensations. The beach. Whether you were born on the coast, moved to the coast or love to vacation on the beach you know the feeling I'm talking about.
Sometimes I stare far out into the ocean at the horizon dreaming about the future, other times I get mesmerized by the waves crashing and wonder how I can mimick the beauty in a piece of jewellery. Or else I just sit and watch as the water rushes into shore, running for miles along the ocean, how far has it travelled before it finally meets the sand?
As I write this I continue to take long breaks looking out over the surf, I forgot my notepad back home but luckily my purse always packed with a pen and some scrap paper which I doodle on, I draw waves. Different sizes, shapes and forms and try to discover a new and unique way of turning it into a piece of jewellery.
I'm grateful for the time to reflect but equally eager for the day when I get to craft these thoughts and doodles into pieces of art. When I return home to my jewellery bench there will no doubt be several pieces of waves and surf that will begin to appear in my travel collection.
