Pebble Beach

Ok, yes, I'm getting a little punny with my title here, but I couldn't help myself. These earrings are the perfect marriage of beach and primitive - for the organic earth mother in all of us. When Rey from greybirdstudio gifted me these little salmony and lemony shells from the Isle of Skye, I knew I had to create a study in warm beachy sunset hues. 

It took some fiddling, but I settled on a neat ladder design to feature a handful of smooth tumbled Lake Michigan pebbles. 

Some creative wire wrapping plus little scraps of hemp twine, and you're ready for some sand squishing between your barefoot toes. 

A flowy long dress, hair tressed up and wild, sun kissing your bare shoulders...I can feel it now :)
