It’s hot hot hot and dry as a bone in Phoenix right now. As I run errands, I’m like most Phoenicians where I can’t get the air conditioner in my car to cool down quick enough. Yes, it’s fun to post 70-degree weather photos on Facebook during the winter months when it’s blizzard conditions in the Midwest and East Coast, but I can tell you we Zonies pay for our sunshine smugness every single summer.
Since I’ve been dreaming about my favorite summer getaway – San Diego and it’s gorgeous beaches – with no opportunity of leaving town for a visit, I decided to spend the morning in my studio making some dreamy, beach-inspired jewelry. Here’s a simple cast resin focal and seashell bead bracelet design that I whipped up. If I can’t be cool, at least I can look cool, right???
Thinking it’s time to put on a cotton summer dress, my new bracelet, some strappy sandals and get hubby to take me for sushi. When life gives you hot lemons, it’s time to make some toddies! Forget that crap…I’ll take all of the above and a icy cold margarita. Now we’re talking!
I hope you are enjoying your summer and getting in some much needed maker time.
