“Wave Riding.”


Description from Deb Harding: Catch A Wave.

I'm an avid body boarder, beach girl, ocean lover. I also pick up so many shells it's ridiculous. I especially love the tiny ones no
one else sees. These colors and beads reflect my love for all things of the sea. The pendant is for all the waves I've caught and will catch. The mermaid button, pendant, etc... lol....for the time a guy called me a mermaid when I was out in hurricane surf.

    Thank you. Its kind of hard not to pick good stuff here…everything is gorgeous. I’ve placed 3 orders in 3 weeks. I’m seriously addicted.

    Beautiful colors. Great combo of smooth and rough texture. Just like a wave. :)
    Where are you from? I’m living on the East Coast of Florida and remember boarding when I was younger.

    I’m in eastern NC about 40 minutes from the coast but its always been an almost every weekend trip since I was in high school. I’m 56 now and still love to ride.

    Haven’t been to FL in forever. Love it.

    I’m “in-land” about 10 minutes from the intercoastal and barrier islands. I still have to see and hear the waves weekly. I’m 53 and not as brave as you, so I don’t go out. But… once a beach girl, always a beach girl.
    Lima Beads has a lot of recycled glass beads so I always have something familiar to work with. they’ll mix well with the shells you pick up.

    btw: Too odd… If I was able to retire “anywhere” it would be in the Carolinas. Beautiful spring and summers, but more fall and winter than Florida offers.

    Recycled glass beads???? How have I missed those.

    It seems everyone wants to retire here for the same reasons you mentioned. It is a beautiful place.

    Love the colour combo! I’m going to give this mix a try.
    Another beach girl here. I grew up on the east coast of Canada in Prince Edward Island. I don’t board on top, I scuba under. I live inland now though so we head to the caribbean for diving.

    I have never tried scuba diving only snorkeling, which was fun.
    I have only purchased part of this pick myself. I bought the wave pendant, the silk ribbon, green opal crystal and the muddy mix shell pearls (got them already..LOVE!). I’m waiting to buy the mermaid items….sigh.
