Beach Walk

The Hitchhiker

Designed to conjure up memories of walking on a beach.  The bead embroidered base is in shades of Caribbean blue and golden sand.  Layered on that are shells and mother-of-pearl, with a focus on the Turbo Sarmaticus shell in the middle.  This is the common name the South African turban, a species of sea snail found off the south coast of South Africa.  The branches of green seed beads represent seaweed and kelp.  The collar is backed in a suede-type material for comfort.
