The Next Great Adventure!

Dear friends, I have a big announcement for you.  I've retired from my position as designer for Ohm Beads and am taking over as owner and designer for Nettles Jewelry.  It is a wholesale line of jewelry utilizing recycled glass to make lovely frames for the art.  I'm thrilled about the new venture, but this also means I will stop retailing Ohm Beads and will miss all of you. 

On this note, I will be holding my last sale.  15% off all jewelry in my Charmish shop this Friday-Sunday.  Please use the code "NEXTADVENTURE" during your check-out for the discount.  Free shipping.

 You are welcome to follow my adventures and see some of my new line on our new Nettles Jewelry facebook page.  When the website is up next month, you'll be able to use the "store locator" to find shops and galleries near you that carry the Nettles Jewelry line. 

Thank you for being such sweet customers.  I will miss you!

Cheers, and onto the next big adventure,

New island travel charm beads

New from Ohm Beads, this little cutie ukulele playing, hula girl, wearing her lei and singing the most charming Hawaiian charms, and Honu the sea turtle. I designed these for our travel series after being inspired by our first trip to the Island of Kauai last fall.

I want these charms to remind you of the beauty and peace of the Hawaiian islands, your favorite vacation/time there, the lap of the waves, gorgeous underwater world, scent of the night blooming flowers, fresh fish and fruit, ukulele songs, and the wonderful local people.

To buy them from me, click on the images and you'll arrive at my etsy shop. If you find they are not in stock at the time of your visit, just email me and I'll order you one. :-)

I wanna go back, to my little grass shack.....

Honu the sea turtle has a beautifully enameled back and the Hibiscus flower engraved on his tummy. With this little friend on your wrist, you can surf the waves daily.

Dolphin Friend

The perfect bead to celebrate summer, the ocean, and that amazing vacation you took..... designed by me for Ohm Beads summer release. You can get your special dolphin friend directly from me at my Charmish shop on Etsy.

Happy summer, and please remember to keep your bracelets out of the ocean, the pool, and hot tubs. Give them a rinse and pat dry once in a while, and a nice buffing with a polish cloth.
