Turquoise Waves

After spending the last week camping and relaxing on the shores of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, I'm finally back to work.

But I didn't manage to escape beads for the entire week! While on our way to hike the Cup & Saucer Trail on Manitoulin Island, we dropped into Lillian's Crafts in M'Chigeeng. There we found quite a large selection of seedbeads and bugles for sale, as well as some gorgeous beadwork. If you are ever in the area, definitely make a stop there to check out the beadwork, carvings and stunning quill boxes.

The scenery is definitely something to see as well! I could easily have spent another week sitting on the shores of Flower Pot Island or hiking the Bruce Trail watching the clear turquoise waves crash against the rocky shoreline.

As a memento of this trip, I'm tempted to create one of Marilyn Gardiner's Flat Mesh Bracelets. The flowing silver jumprings reminding me of the cool, glistening waves of Georgian Bay. And if you are looking to create a memento of your own, why not drop by Marilyn's Flat Mesh Bracelet Class on Friday August 22nd.
