A Long Time Hidden

Just before we left, a little package appeared in our letterbox. I was nearly not going to open it but how could I resist?
Shannon from Miss Fickle Media gifted me this delicious array.
I briefly held it, then packed it away for a time when my life was less chaotic.
When I set up my grunge studio, I found the package again.

It whispered The Sea as softly as a silver wave breaking on the shore. 
Not tropical seas of pearlescent aqua and coral and tiny brilliant fish. 
This spoke of colder waters. Of rocky shores, tide pools, starfish, periwinkles, limpits, the pylons of old wharfs clustered with waving seaweed and the long tendrils of kelp swaying and coiling in the ocean swells.

  5. It has been a while but this necklace completely transports me to dipping my toes and fingers into tide pools. Beautiful.
