Color Inspiration - Grapevine
by Debbie Blair
My daughter and I have been trying to squeeze in a few more outdoor activities during these warm weeks of summer. During our early morning walks, before the day starts to heat up, we enjoy treks through our neighborhood, where we look for the houses with grapevines draped over the redwood fences.
These walks have been a wonderful opportunity for my nine-year-old and me to converse about many topics, everything from "I'm almost as tall as you and now I can wear your shoes" to "I wish the earth had a lot of moons like other planets do." In recent weeks, it's been "Ooo, are these grapes? Can I eat one?" which prompted a discussion around the varieties of grapes that grow in our climate, and how fascinating it would be to have the "grape stomper's" job at a vineyard!

For this bracelet, I created beaded dangles in plums and pale greens. I then attached them to a length of chain using jump rings and secured a variegated purple ribbon to the ends using wire wraps. Simply tie the ribbons into a bow around your wrist and enjoy!

I hope you revel in every last bit of summer!
