Weekly BEST: Waterwaif


This week I'm featuring a talented jewelry artisan from Melbourne, Florida.  Waterwaif features a variety of modern and vintage jewelry in sterling silver, gold, and copper.  Her connection to her work is very personal and each piece has a story to tell.  The ocean is one of her sources of inspiration and strength and this connection shines through in her work.  I picked out these as my favorite ocean-themed items from her shop:

I live close to the beach so Waterwaif's jewelry is so appealing to me!

Just a sucker for all things coastal. Grew up on tybee Island Georgia so all these items make me smile and feel a little homesick at the same time. Beautiful items

I agree Andee, that's my favorite piece as well!

Thanks everyone for your comments and for checking out the shop! It's cool to hear that the ocean themes resonated with you ladies too.
