About Us

My husband and I live in a Queen Anne Victorian Alameda, California, which was built in 1899. We have our pet dog Sage (the one with her goggles on), and two egg laying chickens “Gumbo and Pot Pie”. When I am not at my job trying to “save the earth” as an environmental toxicologist I love to garden and work with my award winning roses, or painting in acrylics, and collecting Sea Glass. I love new Orleans Jazz, Cajun and Blues Music.

When visiting New Orleans, I love the Gulf Oysters, Bignets at Café Du Monde, Strolling along the Mississippi, visiting the antique shops, walking thru the Garden District and visiting the clubs away from Bourbon Street such as the House of Blues, Tipitians or Mulates.


After many years of transforming vintage glass bead necklaces and presenting them as gifts and not seeing necklaces with the quality, and history of the vintage glass beads, I decided to venture into this business. I purchase vintage necklaces and beads from shops and individuals from the Gulf States as well as the sterling silver pendants which is my way of helping the economy in that region.

The Storm Pendent is in recognition of Hurricane Katrina, and its devastation to New Orleans (the Fleur de Lie in the center is the symbol for New Orleans). I chose a small silver pendent, but it comes in various sizes.


We also make “Sea Glass” necklaces, bracelets and earrings from the sea glass that I have collected, from our California Beaches. It takes up to 20 years of natural tumbling in the surf to make each piece of sea glass.

We also have re-strung Pukka Shell Necklaces from Hawaii and also have them available with a turtle figure pendant (which is the native American symbol for Earth) or various pendants or sea glass.
