The best place in the world is that twelve-foot space between high tide and low tide on Long Island’s north shore. I grew up spending hours in the sand at water’s edge honing my engineering skills (digging tunnels, building castles, mining cool pebbles) and engaging with interesting friends (snails, crabs, and minnows). Playing in the tide meant instinctively changing position to deal with constantly changing wind and water. I spent hours enchanted with my industry and was still aware of my surroundings. A young one could run, wiggle, mumble, talk at the top of one’s voice, carry water in a pail and spill lots of it. At the beach no one tells you to “use walking feet”, “speak up”, “use your inside voice”, “put that down”, or “wipe your feet”. Anything can happen in that messy edge between sand and sea.
These pieces feature incredible Royston ribbon turquoise, ammonite fossils, fossilized snails with natural druzy and a host of other turquoise gems with lots of sterling and fine silver. Enjoy!
