There is nothing quite like travel to bring on the inspiration in my mind. Being surrounded by fresh sights, sounds, smells, tastes and the rhythm of a yet-to-be-explored destination definitely gets the creative juices flowing. On our recent visit to Spain and Portugal, Scott and I were captivated by the cultural riches of patterns, textures and colors of Iberia.
There was something about the intricate ironwork
and decorative elements….fringes, golden hues and shine.
The bold and brilliant colors surrounding us caught our eye……..
as did the juxtaposition of worn graffiti splashes and the sleek, high shine of the Guggenheim in Bilbao.
And for me, the seaside — always the sea — truly the best source of inspiration.
I am happy to announce that this creative inspiration became the driving force behind
our first joint venture for my Stylemindchic Boutique!
Introducing the Stylemindchic Boutique – Limited Edition Jewelry Collection –
San Sebastian Sea
inspired by Spain and Portugal
Handcrafted by Scott and Heather Lindstrom from stones, beads, elements and vintage adornments collected from our travels.
(This is my vibe….and I hope you like it!)
Our family history with jewelry making
Scott’s father, Dean, was an aerospace engineer by day and a jewelry making enthusiast by night. Over the years Dean and Margie traveled the world and collected beautiful gems to craft into priceless pieces of jewelry. Dean sold many of his creations but his favorite muse, and receiver of his jewelry, was his bride of 64 years, Margie. Dean is still with us, but has retired his jewelry-making hobby. Scott was gifted the tools from his dad. We look forward to carrying on the tradition, just as we do some of the other traditions, like travel……..and dancing.
