My hubby and I love walking on beaches looking for rocks,  sea shells or mermaid tears when we travel. We leave no stone unturned! I know, it really shows that we are tourists, but these treasures are really the best souvenirs!

When we went to the French Antilles Guadeloupe I found this interesting small white stone on the beach of  Saint-Francois. The rock had a natural hole through it and the hole was well located in the stone making it perfect to be part of some alluring handmade jewelry.

I made a very simple pendant and earrings set pairing the beach stone with some blue turquoise semi-precious stones, royal blue Swarovski crystals and antique satin finish glass beads. The pendant is the focal point and hangs on a round maille chain to give a nautical vibe to the set. I build the jewelry using black metallic split rings, eye-pins, headpins and earring wires for a little a contrast. I like the summer feel of the ensemble. Do you?

Saint-Francois is a fishing harbor situated on the south-east point of the main island Grande Terre and is part of the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. It is a commune on this French overseas department. Perfect place for travelers who like beaches and water activities like snorkeling, catamaran excursions and scuba diving.

We stayed around the Marina of Saint-Francois located along a beautiful lagoon. In Guadeloupe the days are blazing hot but the evenings are beautiful and breezy. Perfect to cool off drinking a glass of  “Ti punch”, literally meaning small punch, a traditional alcoholic drink made with Guadeloupean rum, lime and cane syrup.

À la vôtre!
