Color of the beach

A blissful day at the beach

I love beach. When I am facing fear face to face,  after putting my ultimate hope towards my Almighty Creator to wash off my fear, I played a mental game of peace by imagining myself at the beach.  Laying on the sand while listening to the sound of the waves were like a free therapy to the soul. But … a hyperactive me can only stayed idle for half an hour (the most) and then the explorer ME would start kicking out ;-). What will I do when I am at the beach?

Hanging around the beach with a camera is so much fun. Apart from shooting the same old sunset and sunrise, shooting moon rising (full moon) is also a cool thing to do.  Watching the moon rising slowly while enjoying the night breeze is priceless. I did that once with my lovely ‘chatty’ daughter, yeah she talked a lot and I could not focus well 🙂 . And, like all the time we ended up doing our cat fight while watching the moon and me kept telling her to keep her voice low and she kept on reminding me that I love my camera more than her arghhh!.

I hope that I will have another chance to shoot moon rising again. Need proper planning next time

I am thinking of creating a bracelet and a matching necklace that would remind me of the beach. I want to make it a bit dreamy with tangling stones hanging around my pendant. So, a mixture of milky colored agate stones; milky colored shell beads; ‘silverish’ colored pearl seed beads; ‘sand brown’ colored glass seed beads; some metal starfish beads and a big steel pendant to add some drama into it; and wallah! a dreamy necklace 😉 .

The necklace. I wish I have a tall proper stand to fully display my necklace. Been looking for one but nothing catch my eyes yet …

The bracelet. Generic jewelry display rack sold at most shops looked awkwardly dull to me.  I think they cater more towards mass produced jewelry and not for a hobbyist like me. So, I just used anything that is available around my working area to display my jewelry

I think pearls would look good in this design too. The ‘milky powdered’ color of pearls in different sizes matched with some milky shell beads and peach colored zircon pendant would feel more genuinely ‘beach’. If you want to know detail description of each jewelry piece here please check it out at GayaIzzah.com Facebook page and GayaIzzah.com  IG account or you can just email me directly 😉 . Off ME goooo to the dreamland ….. enjoy yeah …
