Color Inspiration - Blue Grotto
by Kristal Wick
I keep a Pinterest page of all the exotic places in the world I want to visit someday. This is perhaps my fave of all! The Blue Grotto is on the small island of Bisevo off the coast of Croatia.
The cave was formed by water erosion as the seawater carved into the island's limestone rock over time. I think the blue shades are breathtaking and I can only imagine what it looks like in person. A visit to this paradise is on my bucket list for sure.

In my design I used chain with Apatite stones. You could make the links yourself but I love saving time whenever I can and use these stone chains frequently for a quick way to add texture and interest to a piece. I wrapped silver wire cages around 2 gorgeous Czech glass beads and attached a simple chain to the top of the design. Every time I wear this necklace I get dozens of compliments and it's so fun to tell the story of how it came to be thanks to the beautiful Blue Grotto.
