'Mint Tints' is the inspiration for this week--from Design Seeds
A looooong time ago my husband a I took a trip to Bermuda with another couple we always hung out with. Bermuda is a British territory in the North Atlantic, just off the east coast of the United States. I was surprised, and delighted at how the island people are able blend the fun of the Caribbean with the elegance of the British culture. The islanders were only allowed to own one car, and tourists rented motor scooters. Billboards and neon signs are not allowed, and the only fast food restaurant was Kentucky Fried Chicken. The food was fabulous-I'm talking about the local food NOT KFC. The pink beaches were gorgeous, and the ocean-which is the inspiration for this piece-was spectacluar.
Made with tiny faceted Amazonite rectangles and sterling silver, this bracelet reminds me of relaxing on the lovely beaches of Bermuda.
