So the weather. Apart from a dreich, rather windy couple of days this week it continues to be sunny and summery. This balmy, fluffy white cloud, blue sky weather makes me want to don a floaty frock and spend a day beach combing. I could easily spend an entire day happily gazing at the strandline and at piles of pebbles and filling my pockets full of treasure. It’s likely that I would forget to have lunch. This has happened once or twice.
When I put the silver pebble down onto the wood the small pile of handmade antique beads nearby in various shades of aquamarine seemed to leap out, as did my trusty stash of tiny shell buttons and some little drilled shells. A small seaside-inspired collection was inevitable.
It echoes tiny treasures brought home from the beach, Cornish coves, rockpools, piles of pebbles on the beach at Walberswick, seaglass collections and holiday memories. It’s called the beachcomber series and it’s in my etsy shop.
