Heidi Daus at the Beach: Surf, Sand and Jewelry
1. Towels, check.
2. Umbrella, check.
And now the dogs are in the car and the cooler is packed, so you know I could only be headed to one place… the beach!
My boys and I so look forward to August when we can get away from it all, and recharge before that mad back-to-school rush. My two older boys return to college, and my Shane will be entering the first grade, so we all look forward to this much-needed break.
While August is a getaway month for me, the truth is, I can never get away from jewelry! The sand and surf may have the power to transport me, but it’s always right to the design table! All beauty translates into jewelry for me. Looking at the inside of a shell has me dreaming up a mother-of-pearl necklace with hints of subtle iridescence that compliment a sun-tanned complexion and summer attire so perfectly.
When my little Shane and I go picking seashells in the glittering surf you know what I’m thinking of? Of course, you do! A scallop shell bedazzled in rose-colored crystals, or a grand starfish in sand opal suspended by multiple strands of beads in various shapes and sizes. WOW!
Call me a hopeless romantic, a die-hard girly-girl and I’ll simply agree! Thank goodness for all of you Heidi Girls out there who understand my predicament. We are in this together, right? My August obsessions generally mean that my September show on HSN promises to be killer! I am breaking out with new designs that speak of the end of summer, crisp fall days and romantic nights. Stay tuned!
I am beach bound, so I’m going to sign off for now, but I’ll see you in September girls!
