About Us

How It's Made

My signs are hand-made using select pine wood, acrylic paint, and an eco-friendly sealant. Each is first cut and the sanded before being painted. Once all is done a sawtooth hanger is attached for easy hanging!

My chimes are all hand strung. I use shells, sea glass, and driftwood all of which are hand collected and never anything other than genuine. Each piece is drilled and strung to a base of either a large shell or driftwood. 

Any shells which could harbor critters are carefully checked for before taking. 

About Me

 Surprisingly, I used to never be into the whole beach/coastal theme. That was until I was introduced to a little gem called Sea Glass. A friend told me about what sea glass was--broken glass smoothed over from the action of the waves. I thought he was off his rocker and that it was impossible and I’d never ever find a piece.

I was on a fishing trip one summer in Southern Maryland. After a few hours of no fish biting I was getting rather bored. So I decided I was going for a walk on the beach right next door to the pier. I had my head down looking at all the stones and rubbish on beach but nothing popped out at me. I looked and watched the little ripples of the Chesapeake meeting the sand of the beach. And there it was. My very first piece of sea glass! I snatched it up out of the water, I was so excited to find that soft blue piece that had no sharp edges, completely smooth with a light frost. Just like I was told. I was hooked…

Having fallen head over heels, I wanted to be able to share my love of the sea and the beach with others. 


"Exactly what I wanted! So in love with the final product. Also the seller had quick and fast communication with me as I had a few questions. Thank you for the great piece of art :)"

"Perfectly captures the beachy vibe I had hoped for. Excellent quality and customer service. Thank you so much! My husband said it was the perfect Christmas present."

" Shipped and arrived in the time it said it would. Good quality. Would recommend to a friend."
