March Bead Journal Project
March for me represents water. I'm a Pisces and I feel like water is my home. When I am in water I am at peace. My bead for this month represents water, and particularly Bead Cruise 2014. I started the bead while on the cruise. I brought a mix of size 11 seed beads and a mix of drop beads. That's it. There are probably 3 layers of beading on the wooden bead. Lots of things you can't see, like swirls and ruffles and wave caps, but it's all in there.
This first photo is of my favorite beach, Wingaersheek Beach, in Gloucester, Mass. We spent our childhood going to this beach. There is a story that my father was once offered a plot of land when he got out of the army but he was young and it seemed expensive at the time. If only....! We were fortunate to have friends who had a house on the private side of the beach and that is where we went. This is the path leading to the beach, just seeing it evokes so many memories.
