This piece is part of a color story reflecting on memories of some of my favorite places on the island of St. Croix. This particular piece is reminiscent of The Buccaneer hotel with so many vibrant colors everywhere you look from the moment you walk in. Our family and friends have enjoyed many dinners and gatherings there while living on the island.
I decided to mix gemstones with glass to get all the colors I needed to truly reflect this color story and I'm so glad I did, as it turned out to be a piece I am obsessed with and adore. The gemstones and glass beads are as dazzling and sparkling in the sunlight as the beautiful Caribbean Sea surrounding St. Croix.
The gemstones I used with the Czech glass are onyx, agate, red lace agate, sunstone, opal, citrine, jade, strawberry quartz and crystal.
