Prepare to come about… that’s about all I can recall from my brief sailing days on the Narragansett Bay.

But, if you are going to remember one lesson from sailing,

that’s a pretty important one to recall unless you want to go for a swim or get knocked out.

I do love the ocean and the beach, and here I am, living in the Mojave desert. I have tons of beach, but no water.

I always like to look at the glass as half full.

I kept it simple for the Art Bead Scene August challenge with a small fabric and wire wrap bracelet using some black bailing wire (you can find this at the local hardware store), grey fabric cotton yarn, a few metal spacers, one red seed bead and some beautiful labradorite beads. I like how the labradorite reminds me of the reflection of sunlight on the ocean water. This bracelet is light weight and comfortable to wear.
