In the Netherlands we have the kind of weather that is almost never extreme, but a summer with many rainy days are not uncommon. Therefore every summer we are found on all the South European beaches to enjoy a much more stable kind of weather! I do love the custom jewelry sold on the local boulevards, the shells on a leather strap...perfect on the beach and no worries if you should lose it. But if you want some luscious sea side inspired jewelry, there is soooo much out there!
Such cute little octopusses.......love these rings by Roberto Coin
Come and take a look. It is the first series of sea side jewelry, but certainly not the last.
This stunning lobster is by one of my favorite designers: Stephen Webster
In Italy I lived an hour from the flower riviera and I spent many lovely days there and just over the border on the French riviera. The light over there is incredibile.
AveVa jewelry made this cute little starfish pendant
The sea side has just this buzz of life. You can find all kinds of luxury too in the shops close to the beaches. I went often to Portofino too. An amazingly beautiful little place on one of the most idyllic shores.
I recently discovered the work of Daniela de Marchi and I must say I appreciate it very much!
But these days I am more drawn to the Costa Brava. Places like Pals and Tossa del Mar are more my kind of holiday now. It is much less luxury for sure and if you look for the parties and so on, you can visit Lloret de Mar for example.
A very important brooch with so much going on, the pearls indicate that this is not a very cheap piece but I love to admire it all the same. Wonderful! A painting almost...
But I love the sort of beauty and calm of the smaller villages. In the evening there is no showing off, like in Italy ;-) But you can sit and watch the sun go down and life is very laid back.
Bianca Moretti made a whole series of sirene's and the are seductive and cute.....
There is so much gorgeous jewelry around based on the sea, the fish, the corals and so forth that I will need more than one blog to show you once more the amazing creativity of designers.....
