“Psst. Resting with the flowers in the garden for me is a reminder of the web of relationships; the teaching about the amazing diversity of flowers ~ no two scents are the same”

Lilly Beads Designs Gift Ideas


Good evening everyone! I would love to show you some beautiful handmade jewelry art from Rainbow Artist team member, leader and my dear sweet friend Kathi Heale from Lilly Beads Designs.  Kathi makes a variety of beaded jewelry from beaded necklaces, bracelets, earrings and beaded leather wrap bracelets. She has beautiful jewelry sets and gifts that would be perfect for Mother’s Day or any holiday .

I am in love with her leather wrap bracelets. I have one that I wear almost everyday. They are so comfortable you hardly know you have something on your wrist. But they make what you are wearing pop. They are very , very cool!

Kathi takes customs orders so you can create just how many wraps you would like.

Here are a couple of my favorites that are in her Etsy shop

Every Sea Shell has a Story….

Sea shells tell a story ~ each beautiful, each perfectly intricate. If you press a seashell against your ear and listen carefully, she whispers the secrets of her life journey.

I am mesmerized by the way Gerry from Eagle414 expresses stories in the sea shells she collects. You can see how much she loves these sea shells in each unique piece that is created. Here are a couple examples of her art, just click on the pictures for more information:

I am starting the New Year off with my team blog posts today. The first shop up is

Ocean Beach Glass.

Ocean Beach Glass

Jenifer Liput is one of my very dear friends and a team leader on Rainbow Artists Team.

Jenifer is a very talented artist and a very busy woman. She makes very beautiful glass art. Today I would like to show you a couple of my favorite pieces.

But before we get to that here is something from Jen.


Greetings and salutations from Ocean Beach Glass in the Golden State., From the Bay to the Coastal mountains of Northern California. I follow sunsets and daydreams, my world is what I make and my passion for this fire work is more than deep, but a need in my heart to be part of. I often have sand in my shoes and you’ll find I’m truly the most happy when I’m working and being a family at the same time; to be with each hand in hand. Music and the Earth and Skies Inspire me. Though I have worked with many art forms and crafts all my life, Glass is my medium of choice as it allows me to flow freely like the movement of the liquid of the earth that connects us all. A little science and a little art, allowing my mind to grow with every time I see the light of the torch. I’ve always been a serious knowledge seeker, and visionary artist.. and glass.. well glass, it’s like honey, and can drip like water. In melting, allows you to transform it into whatever my heart desires.

I’m grateful for the support of the people who truly collect my glass marbles and stirs. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Especially my return customers who loyally come back to me time and time again.

My Ocean Beach Glass Listings and Etsy store have been pictured in the 2015 Better Homes and Gardens May 2015 magazine issue and you can find me published in the winter 2014 issue of the Flow Magazine., a glass magazine for the flame working community and Featured in the Women in Glass issue and the 2015 Marbles and Paperweights Issue of the Flow Magazine.

Blue -Green Drink Stirs

I love the beautiful green color of these drink stirs. They are made  of borosilicate -Pyrex Glass. Each one of these is handmade. What a beautiful way to serve your guests at a party.

Drink Stirs – Handmade glass for Bars and Homes

I love the swirling colors in the tops of these glass drink stirs. Stunning work!

We love you and your beautiful art Jen! ❤

Thanks so much for stopping in!

Blessings to all!
