Those wide open Norfolk vistas are still playing themselves in my mind.
The colours and the smell of salt and sea lavender on the wind. And the honey scent of a way-side plant growing along every lane.
Empty, clean stretches of coast seem a luxury in our overcrowded island, and I can never resist filling my pockets with sea tumbled shells and stones to remind myself of the sea when I head back inland.
These wonderful textures, and the gentle, warm colours...I think they are going to find their way into some jewellery designs, along with those gorgeously curvy tide lines in the wet sand and the wiry dune grass.
In the meantime, my botanically inspired collection is nearly ready for the shop, more of that in another post but here is a little taster!
I'm taking them to a handmade market on Saturday, so it will be really interesting seeing how people respond to them. If we're not washed away in predicted rainstorms! :/
