You’ll have to forgive my tardiness on getting this BLOG up for post…I’ve just returned from my annual southwest sojourn, hunting for gems (figuratively and literally) for Beach Treasures in Duck.
I came upon this rhodochrosite bracelet while shopping – and as we all love to do when visiting a new place – I marveled at how it captured so much of the southwest. Perhaps the rosy tones of the rhodochrosite don’t conjure up images of bold canyons in the desert, but they sure do capture the sky. To watch the transformation from brilliant blue to rosy reds and finally to those midnight hues is to be amazed on a nightly basis.
The desert southwest is an inspirational backdrop to be sure. Showcasing such an extensive collection of jewelry at Beach Treasures in Duck has provided me the good fortune to enjoy many a journey seeking and meeting designers and artisans. Over the years, I’ve learned a great deal about gems, but not nearly as much as I’ve learned from and about the artisans behind all this exquisite work. The stones are naturally beautiful – but the craftsmanship and artistry are what infuse them with their spirit.
So, I’m back on the Outer Banks now – feeling at home under a big Carolina Blue sky with salty air. Feverishly unpacking so many special finds in hopes to bring them all to you just in time for Valentine’s Day! Trust me…there are SO many pieces to make your heart sparkle.
I invite you to shop the magnificent collection of jewelry showcased here at Beach Treasures Online as well as in our shop, Beach Treasures in Duck located exclusively on the Town of Duck’s Boardwalk on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
