At the Ohio Beaders retreat we also have a gift exchange. Names are drawn and kept secret until the actual exchange.
The name I was given belongs to a woman who spent a good part of the summer on a tropical island so I wanted to make something to give her a fond memory of her delightful summer.
I tried to capture the color of sea to sand and the waves flowing into the beach.
Here is what I came up with. I've named it Jewel of the Sea.
I made her a ring to go with it - just for fun. I have no idea what her ring size is so I can only hope it fits one of her fingers.
