Beach Inspirations - Beach Glass Earrings

“The sea! the sea! the open sea!, 
The blue, the fresh, the ever free!” 
                         – Bryan W. Procter

This past weekend my family ventured to the waters for a weekend camping trip with friends.  I don't know about you but being next to water seems to calm my soul.
I've decided it is the perfect escape from everyday responsibilities...lose your feet into the sandy beach, listen to the waves, feel the breeze on your face and watch children play...
The child in me actually sneaks out as I find myself surveying the sand for beach glass or shells... Something about this space rejuvenates and inspires the soul!

Here is a little beach themed inspiration of mine:

I decided to pull out these beach glass lamp-work beads I had sitting around my studio for the last 6 month....and created these beach themed earrings which can be found in my Etsy Shop Lisa Michele Creations....

What inspires you when you are at the beach...the waves, the sound of the sea gulls...?
I would love to know your favorite beach spot...mine is Tillamook Head in Oregon.
What ever the inspiration and where ever the location..I hope that is lifts your spirit and creates a space of joy in your heart..:)

Bronze Earring Sale

I've decided to have a bronze earring sale to determine if there is a demand for my bronze designs.  I usually create in sterling silver or pewter but recently thought I'd give the beautiful soft hue of bronze a go.
I started designing in bronze as I felt the designs were just as beautiful as sterling silver and bronze is much less expensive!

Sale starts today and designs are limited...

Hurry and pick up your earrings by heading to my shop:

Also, I would love to hear if what you think of bronze jewelry.
Do you prefer sterling silver, gold-filled or bronze?
Do you wear Bronze?
