I really appreciate that you are here.

So, what are your favorite summer rituals?

I love going to the beach.

The sun, sand, and the sound of the waves are both relaxing and invigorating. 

When I'm at the beach, I always dip my toes in the water, even if the temperature is ice cold.

I always take long walks and search the shore for treasures.

Sometimes I find just one.

And other times, I discover a handful.

When I get home, I give them a rinse and let them dry overnight. I love to use them for crafting.

Let me show you how I turned the seashells from blah to TADA!: 

I made them into earrings.

 I used findings and jump rings from the craft store...

...as well as different beads from my stash.

I chose colors that remind me of the sea.

I've also used the seashells to make these necklaces:

These are broken shells but their edges have become smooth with the help of the waves. I simply added some jewelry findings and a chain...TADA!

These are pieces I can wear all year round and always remind me of summers at the shore. Have a good week everyone!
