Nautilus Maritime Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

Maritime culture had fascinated Audra of Nautilus Maritime since childhood, but it was not until her teenage years -when she first began working on the brig Lady Washington- that she became familiar with the skills of the traditional sailor known as marlingspike seamanship. She found that it was an art as rich in history as it was in variability, and was the perfect combination of decoration and practicality. She continues to work -off and on- aboard the Lady Washington, where she furthers her studies in marlingspike seamanship, and ashore she seeks to produce authentic pieces of maritime art that are both original and true to tradition.

The beautiful pieces you'll find in Audra's shop will have you in awe. I fell in love with all her pieces, from her simple buttons to her intricately knotted bracelets and necklaces. Audra is extremely talented and amazing at what she does. Here are just a few of the items you'll find in her etsy shop:

Audra also sent me one of her beautiful knotted 'Cringle' bracelets to review. The colors of the beads and the knotting of the bracelet really makes it an amazing and unique piece. I can tell that the bracelet is durable and well made. Make sure to check out Nautilus Maritime on etsy and facebook!
