Color Inspiration - Dolphin Dreams
by Kristal Wick
One of my favorite trips was a visit to Kona, Hawaii last year with some pals and we were so lucky to do a dolphin swim. Not the kind in captivity, but a swim with bottleneck dolphins in the wild off the Kona coast. It was magical! The small group of us had a great guide who took tons of pics underwater and this one was my favorite.
The pod of dolphins consisted of roughly 60-70 all ages and the babies were so fun to watch. Leaping out of the water and spinning with glee. I'm certain dolphins are my spirit animal and visiting their home was really awe-inspiring in so many ways.

The colors in this image are my favorites, calming blues and greens never fail to delight! I threw in a splash (pun intended) of topaz for the sand element of the beach. This bracelet is a great way to use up your bead soup or orphan beads since you don't need a specific amount of any one color. The fun is in combining shades of a color pallet that you like. I used my beloved Wubbers Looping Pliers (referenced above) to make eye pins but you can also use ready-made eye pins as well. I love a good magnetic clasp for the finishing touch and ease of use. I hope you're inspired to create your version of this bracelet based on one of your images, enjoy.
