East Coast Waters


About this design:

People usually think blue with water however the Atlantic on the East Coast appears green due to algae and plant life. I used Brazilian seaweed agate for the focal and darker beads. The large stones are harmony or peace jasper. Swarovski crystal copper and copper findings.

Components:

Brazilian seaweed agate, harmony jasper, peace jasper, Swarvoski crystal copper, TierraCast antique copper toggle from LB

    I was at the Atlantic when I was 9 yrs., old with my gr’ma in ’51. My first view of the ocean!!! I LOVED it. I don’t remember the color, but at that age you want to ‘feel’, not ‘observe’ and I felt it as much as I could for a week. Haven’t been back since.
    I like your necklace and it looks like a ‘moving, wavy’ ocean – with white caps on the green water.

    I’m with you on the green ocean, especially in the shallows. Gorgeous necklace!

    Very serene oceanic colors. Love the colors and the design.

    I’ve never seen the Atlantic ocean but I live about 13 miles from the Pacific ocean. Does that count? :D

    I know EXACTLY what you mean and your colors are perfect!! I’m not familiar with the stones you used but the lighter colored rounds do a fantastic job of mimicking the color of the waves churning up sand and seaweed. Great design!

    Love your color combo! I’m in Virginia on the peninsula in Yorktown. Surrounded by the waters of the Atlantic and Chesapeake Bay.

    East Coast love! This piece and the description hit home for me. It really does feel like a perfect representation of our beautiful green edge of the world. An equally lovely necklace and meaning!
