Beachcombing and WIP

I promised Karen to share some of my beachcombing finds.  I find it to be very relaxing to walk along the beach and search out anything of interest.  Here are some groups I found during my recent trip to Kauai:

Beach Glass…. I organized them into light and dark beach glass:

I also found some lovely beach pottery that had been transformed by the ocean:

Then, on a black sand beach on the south side of the island, I discovered these lovely kukui nuts just waiting to be picked up:

I love to also collect shells:

WIP:  Been working on some jewelry for my metal arts class, quilting Lori’s quilt for her daughter Cara, and also working on yet another freeform crochet scarf for myself.  I bought most of the yarn in a little yarn shop in Hanalei, so I’m making it to remind me of the island:

  1. WOW, what a haul. I love the light green in the first pics and then the blue one close to the top of the first pic. The shells are so much nicer than the ones I found in Marco Island…plus you have much more variety. Beach pottery…that’s a new one.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the freeform scarf…colors, texture…the whole thing…it’s a winner.

    Thanks for sharing!!
