Spring and fall visitors will notice the popularity of kiteboarding on the Outer Banks the moment they ride down a stretch of soundfront highway. In the off-season months, it's not unusual to spot dozens if not hundreds of multi-colored kites lining the skies over the Outer Banks' miles of sound waters.
Artist, Wendy Sisler loves jewelry. It has been her lifelong passion. She operates a year-round studio and shop in Hatteras Village at Stowe on Twelve. Sisler handcrafts her beads using the lampworking process. You actually can see her creating made-to-order beads that will be fashioned into earrings, necklaces and bracelets. She may include crystals, pearls and gemstones in her designs. The shop includes work by a few other jewelry designers. Make sure to check out their new and especially affordable jewelry lines!
