...the color and energy of the tropics. Rainbow streets. Miles of pattern underfoot.

We visited a local cement tile shop and watched craftsmen transform buckets of colored cement into the iconic, patterned tiles that give Granada its charm.

The ocean. Boats- weathered, rickety, washed ashore. Palm fronds and sea salt patina. Rolling waves.

A colorful journey from 'real life' to beads. All photos were taken on our 2016 trip to Nicaragua. Tropics beads are currently in my shop! Thanks for following along.
