Sea of Bliss is a woman owned small business that launched in 2020 and was born out of a passion for therapeutics from working with my handmade body scrubs and clay facial products. These came about due to allergic reactions I have to many off the shelf products. It was a two year endeavor of research and testing of sorts with a circle of friends who eventually encouraged the next step of opening an Etsy shop. I also enjoy working with plants, crystals, and gemstones.
Somehow my creativity evolved into making succulent planters from upcycling wine bottles! Don't ask how but it just happened. Maybe because I obsess with recycling and love finding ways to upcycle items but we love wine as well.
My succulent planters are wine bottles I hand cut and design in my studio in Carlsbad, CA. These are currently only sold in person at local markets. We are not currently shipping plants due to the weather.
My latest passion is creating crystal jewelry dishes which incorporates my love of natural stones that I learned more about after taking a Colored Stones course with the GIA (Gemology Institute) several years ago. I've also taken precious metals jewelry courses in the San Francisco and made jewelry many years ago. I have a bachelor's degree in business and realize that creating is my passion. It's my therapy.
Growing up in a family of six kids, we were always creating, whether it was sewing, making high end mud pies or ice cream stick forts for my brother's army men to clover chains while guessing which animals were in cloud formations. And the firefly rings were something I would have issue with today. After my dad passed suddenly from a heart attack, my mom put her seamstress skills to work supporting us with her expertise in quilting. I look back on her struggle and appreciate what I've inherited from her.
