Florida Inspiration; Creating DearBritt's Newest Jewelry Line, The Forgotten Coast Collection.

Spring, 2021. Florida Inspiration;
Creating DearBritt's newest jewelry line, the forgotten coast collection.
"Florida '21" written in the sand
The Forgotten Coast Collection was inspired by the community and nature found in Port St. Joe & Panama City Beach, Florida, and surrounding areas during a trip to visit family who lives in the area. This collection features a variety of one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces with intense ocean vacation and under the sea vibes. Made with seashells collected while walking along the shorelines, glass beads, and charms locally sourced from the LH Bead Gallery in Panama City.

I loved every moment I spent while inside the LH Bead Gallery in Panama City and found so much to use in this collection. I visited with two sweet ladies working there who showed me the lampwork glass beads and pendants crafted by the owner. I hope to meet her in person during my next visit!

Here are some of my favorite photo's from the trip! 
Seagulls frequented the area fishing along the shore.
Florida's sunsets are incredible, if you haven't had the chance to see one, I highly recommend it.

A sand castle my little brother and I built. I don't think we'll ever be too old to have fun doing things like this together. :)

The process of creating this collection was a very good way to extend the feeling of being on vacation and remembering the joy and relaxing time I had while visiting, and I can't wait to go back!
