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.
This message bracelet says "in the open sea my soul is free". The bracelet has pretty art jewelry components. I used a ceramic sea shell, a starfish ceramic, anchor bead along with the word bead. The turquoise blues and greens in the bracelet are used to give the bracelet a bohemian beach feel. Natural Irish linen thread was selected to give the bracelet a casual feel.

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".
