My friend Kris Kain, from Island Pleasures on etsy, has been purchasing beads from me for a while. She is one of the nicest people I have ever virtually “met!” One time, she called me because we had been emailing about my little bead funk, just to encourage me to keep at it. She sells her beautiful beach-themed jewelry in New Jersey. Occasionally this girl takes a vacation, and she takes her work with her. She has little impromptu sales and people just love her jewelry, especially on the beaches!
She sent me a package the other day, with these gorgeous Sea Stars from Alice Roth, in New Jersey. She makes them out of recycled glass, sand, and beads. She fuses the sand into the starts, for a gorgeous little gift from your vacation! I have mine on my window in the basement studio. Alice also sells these items, wholesale, and personalized with sand from the beach of your choice! Wouldn’t these make fantastic gifts if you took a vacation with your family to the beach? I know many people who take family vacations and rent houses in South or North Carolina, and I really think these would be a great way to remember the fun times! Another idea is for the bride who is having a destination beach wedding! What cute favors!
If you are interested, you can contact Alice at P.O. Box 302, Barnegat Light, NJ 08006, 609-494-1011. She takes custom orders
