I have a few pieces of silver jewelry that I love, but I read that silver jewelry doesn't handle the cruising lifestyle all that well. While I'm not planning on ditching my silver, I would like some easy-to-wear and inexpensive jewelry for my future "island bum" lifestyle!
I recently came across Mystic Knotwork, a web site with nautical knotted bracelets, anklets, lanyards and all sorts of cool novelties. I was immediately attracted to some beaded bracelets and anklets that come in all sorts of colors ranging from earthy to brightly colored beads. My favorite color is burnt orange, so I ordered an orange bracelet, a brown bracelet, and a matching brown anklet.
I'm happy to say that I love my new "cruiser jewelry"! The anklet and bracelets are comfortable, and I don't have to worry about getting them wet. Best of all, all three items were less than $20 bucks! I'm already thinking of another beaded bracelet in a pretty blue. There's also some nice bracelets that are a little wider with tighter knot work. I'd like to get one of those too!
Mystic Knotwork sells more than jewelry! In fact, I received a pair of lanyards for Nirvana as well. I'll post a picture once they're on our boat, but until then here is a picture of the lanyards ... on our living room floor.
The owners of Mystic Knotwork are sailors, so support the sailing/cruising community and check out their site. I don't get anything for this post, but tell them I sent ya! I'd love to think that they'll gain a few more customers.
Hasta luego ... until then. Mid-Life Cruising!
