Caught My Eye is a series of blog posts showing scenes I found interesting, odd, curious or beautiful. I am not a photographer, so please do not expect top quality photography :-). But please enjoy a glimpse of the world through my eyes.
I was out walking at Dollymount strand, very close to the city centre on Saturday. Parallel to the beach, the promenade is open on one side to Dublin Bay affording a view of the docklands and Poolbeg towers. Though not very appealing in themselves, these two towers are a landmark well known to Dubliners and the skyline would not be right without them. The view shown in the photo above is through the entrance to the ladies' bathing shelter.

The sea air, did however, refire my creativity and I've started work on some fresh, summer jewellery and accessories.
In the meantime, here is some Summer jewellery already listed in my Esty Store :
