The Coastal Crescent Shawl

Inspired by the British Columbian coast, the Coastal Crescent Shawl undulates through mountains and clouds, through a lacy mist and rain, to the crashing waves and sea spray of the Pacific Ocean, while a bead embellishment in the lace sparkles like water droplets in the sun.
