I finally got to take a trip to Belfast, Maine today with one of my my beautiful sisters! What a nice ride. We are so lucky to live in a state where we can just go to the ocean anytime we want without traveling thousands of miles! I got to look around at some really nice boutiques, but the one that really caught my eye was called Beyond The Sea. The jewelry was gorgeous.....just my style:-) I really liked it but, I am the type of person who doesn't buy just any piece of jewelry. I like there to be something special about it. So I asked the lady at the counter about some of the pieces. The pieces that I had my eyes on were handmade in Maine by a lady named Margarita. The focus of these designs is about the color and cut of glass that was hand cut in the first half of the 1900's. There were slight inconsistencies in these vintage pieces which add character to their beauty. I love jewelry that has something special about it. And these are the pieces I chose.
