|A dragon head at the bow of the Viking ship|
Draken Harald Hårfagre while on Expedition America - East Coast Tour 2018 made an unscheduled stop in Lewes, Delaware on Aug. 20, 2018. Sailing south from Long Island, favorable northeast winds put the ship ahead of its scheduled time to dock in Ocean City, Maryland. After a day anchored near the Delaware Breakwater, the captain decided to spend the extra time in historic Lewes. I was delighted to spot the the Viking ship in the city dock.

The ship, based in Mystic Seaport, Conn., made an ocean crossing in the spring of 2016 from Norway to Newfoundland, Canada, retracing the route of Leif Erikson, who led the first European expedition to the New World in 1001. The 2018 tour involves stops at 14 harbors along the East Coast from Maine to South Carolina.

The ocean and bay in Lewes, Delaware offer lots of inspiration for my jewelry. I began to collect nautical beads in the spring and this summer I put together a collection of Lewes inspired nautical bracelets for this summer. They are casual and have a boho look to them.

|Boho Mermaid Bracelet by BayMoonDesign|
This boho mermaid bracelet makes a great gift for a beach lover. I used a sea shell ceramic, a mermaid ceramic and a word bead that has the saying "as free as the ocean". The blues and yellows in the bracelet are used to give the bracelet a beach feel. Natural Irish linen thread was selected to compliment the colors in the bracelet.
All 3 bracelets are available to purchase in my online shop.

|Circle Love Earrings by BayMoonDesign|
These are ceramic red hoop earrings with a retro look. The red and brown hoop earrings are perfect for those who are looking for circle earrings with an earthy retro look. They are very light on the ears. I used natural brass findings and ear wires when I made the earrings. These boho earrings hangs 2 inches (5.1 cm.) in length. They are available for purchase in my online store.
