When you can't do something you want to do it more.  Right?!

Beaches Inspire Earrings

Boho earrings

St Tropez

SOLD

 

Why not?  One can be inspired by anything.  I have a fascination with beaches as they're different wherever your toes touch down.  It can be rocky or soft as powder.  It can be pink, white, tan, black or all the colors of the rainbow.  It can be just big ole rocks or tiny pebbles and shells.  I have a collection of many of the beaches I've traveled in my life and store them in glass bottles.  I wanted to share that with you, but they have not yet been unpacked.  Another post some day I guess.
