I have to say I was truly blessed to have Lori Bowring Michaud as my swap partner. Along with her beautiful earrings she also sent a bit of herself and a very special place, Willard Beach, South Portland, ME.
Her uncle was a life guard there for 38 yrs. and her parents met and fell in love there. That makes me feel it's a very magical place and I want to go there.
The earrings she made have resin set in silver bezels, sea glass from the beach there, mother of pearl, apatite, and peridot.
They evoke the salty air and the colors of the ocean and beach and all the little treasures buried in the sand if you stop and look to find them.
Here are the rest of the participants in the earring swap:
