Along the Saugatuck

Saugatuck River at Westport, CT
Kate and I have been working our way through photographing my growing pile of jewelry. We took a stroll down by the Saugatuck River near the downtown area of our little New England town. There is a wonderful wooden walk way that runs out into the tall grass that grows in the upper marshes of the river. 

It was a gorgeous day, and perfect to get our photography started. I still have quite a lot to photograph, but at least we're putting a dent in it!









This photo of Kate features a piece I've already shown on the blog back in April. It's a simple long, boho necklace with a bit of leather fringe. I do so love fringe in jewelry.

Through the winter I was trying to get my mojo back and started out slowly with some classic beading stitches that just felt good in my hands. I had swatches of beaded patterns all over the place with no clasps or closure. Yes, you can read closure anyway you like here. But sometime in the late spring my mojo sheepishly arrived and I started completing one piece after another. The simplicity of the patterns and closure to the project felt good. 

But my blogging muse was still on vacation somewhere North of the border. As you can see I've got posts stacked up and rolling out at this point. Perhaps my blogging partner has also decided to arrive; even if a bit late to the party.

The long necklace is great and I love fringe on anything. I hope you are staying cool. We are roasting alive in coastal MA. Too much humidity.

Great boho piece! It is fun to go out in your own town with a camera. It is a great way to notice things that otherwise don't catch your eye. Winter totally stinks for mojos.

I love this piece on her, both so beautiful. It helps to have a place and a purpose on these kinds of walks ... what a great way to be out and be together and get some other important things taken care of.
