Life's A Beach!!

I am in the process of moving, which is never fun! To help make it through I am dreaming often of kicking back and relaxing at a beautiful, peaceful beach by the ocean. It seems only fitting to highlight some beautiful handmade works that can help bring a little bit of the beach to you, wherever you may be! All are from shops on Artfire.

This beautiful Beach Watch is by MySRCreations. They have watches made with all sorts of miniatures in every theme imaginable!

This Beach-in-a-Bottle Charm is made by Treasures from Hawaii. I think the shop name says it all!

This fun Summer Plate is by Nikkidoodle. Even the back of the plate is decorated and signed by the artist.

Can you imagine this Ivory Beach Shell Frame by beachgrasscottage showcasing your favorite vacation from your latest beach venture?

Last, by not least by a mile, is this gorgeous Beach Comber bracelet by Freshwater Designs. The bracelet features artisan made lampwork and sterling beach-themed charms!


  1. Thanks for posting & commenting on my Sand-Sational Summer Plate. It is one of my favorites. I actually keep a seasonal plate in my Family Room in my house & I love when it's time for summer!

    Right now I'm creating a creating a new bracelet (or necklace if I get extra creative & have the beads) in bright summer blues.

  2. Thank you so much for featuring my Beach Comber bracelet. I literally just sold it and had intended to deactivate it, but I am glad you found it before I did!

    It's always an honor to be mentioned in someone's blog. :-)

  4. Aloha Rachel!
    Thanks for featuring my Beach-in-a-Bottle charm...I love spreading the Aloha Spirit and sharing it with others through my work, and I've found that the BIAB items are a perfect way to do so(you can have a piece of Kauai with you always!)...

    The other featured works you chose are beautiful and I'm honored to be a part of this fresh ode to the sea! :D

    God bless...Dava
