Sea glass is an all time favorite. It always has a story, nostalgia, and a purpose. Past or present it was a functional. Used as a fisherman’s buoy, a bottle , a dish,etc..Fortunately we love the broken, thrown away, tumbled trash. After tumbling through salty sand, rock and silt over the years, what is left to be discovered are the most beautiful re-usable gems. I have been collecting found objects all of my life and it is one of the most rewarding habits. Most of my collection has come from the North Shore of Oahu and the Big Island of Hawaii. I have a special collection that was given to me from my son Noah that he collected in Northern California on one of his trips. Today I feel blessed to be able to use these Hawaiian gems in my jewelry and decor and create memorable jewelry pieces for the ocean lover . Feel free to contact me via www.beachgirljewels.com I would love to help you create that memorable piece !  I appreciate all of the hard work of the many organizations that help to keep our oceans and beaches that I love clean. To help out a little and to kick off this summer I want to donate a portion of my sales from sea glass and shell jewelry that is purchased this summer from now until the end of July .
Here are are a few of the organizations that are so amazing.
If you can join a beach cleanup that is great or even take a trash bag with you when you go to the beach and pick up a little extra around you.
Have a beautiful day !

The simple things

These simple and powerful phrases are awesome and stole my attention.  Helpful words of inspiration appear when needed!
Strive for what comes from your heart. Questioning your path at times. Trusting your intuition, your soul will never mislead you. Lately my life has been filled with changes and overwhelm. I sometimes wonder what the heck I am doing ?!. My mind is racing in so many different directions. Why do I spread my self so thin ? …ok sob story !
Gratitude always puts me in my place. Remembering and trusting my heart & soul and knowing my path in this life is intentional – to love ,inspire , and create .
I want to share a journaling and freedom technique I learned recently in my school. A process called ” the artists way” By Julia Cameron . It’s a creative tool for life ” morning pages”
A daily practice, 3 pages of longhand , stream of consciousness writing first thing on the morning . Provoking clarity,comfort,and synchronicity for each day at hand. You will be pleasantly surprised at what this practice will magically draw from your soul. Please check out her on www.juliacamerononlive.com

Aloha and have a beautiful day

We Love Tahitian Pearls !
Overwhelmed by their beauty
each time I open my collection of exquisite sea gems. After Ooh-ing and Aah-ing (though I’ve seen them numerous times this week) hahah ! I pick and choose which unique pearl will be used in our various designs. Whether you are looking for that new bangle to add to your stack or one of new necklaces draped with Tahitians and faceted shimmering Druzy crystal or labradorite gemstones. Each piece carries its own character. Here’s a little info on these treasures: Tahitian pearls are farmed in the dreamy blue lagoons of French Polynesia. They are cultured in black lip oysters once the oyster has reached their 2 year maturity. The colors that come out are mind blowing . Black,silvery blue,peacock greens and purple You are sure to fall in love with more than one !

Aloha and have a beautiful day
