|Water drop earrings by Bay Moon Design|
The inspiration for these water drop earrings came from a visit today to Crisfield, Maryland. Crisfield's heritage is on the water, it has many points of access to the Tangier Sound and Chesapeake Bay. The site of today's Crisfield was initially a small fishing village called Annemessex Neck. During European colonization, it was renamed Somers Cove. The name Somers Cove is used in the town.

Crisfield began to slip into decline along with the declining health of the Chesapeake Bay, prompting a "strategic revitalization plan" to address the city's future needs. Currently, Crisfield is largely a tourist destination.

It hosts many annual events and festivals, the most prominent of which is the National Hard Crab Derby. Crisfield is also a major gateway to Smith Island and Tangier Island.
