Here's to 2020!
I’m looking forward to another exciting year with Seaside Serenity Creations LLC. We’ve been in business for about 1.5 years and it’s been an interesting endeavor to say the least. What started out as a way to make wearable jewelry out of shells and sharks’ teeth that I found on local beaches, grew into a business and a full-time job. I really hadn’t intended to start a business, but a couple of things happened that sort of nudged me in that direction:
A few times while shopping, I was literally followed by people who wanted to know where I got the coquina or shark tooth necklace I was wearing.
I found myself unexpectedly retiring earlier than planned.
I was asked to create some Chakra bracelets for a local spa.
We started out creating a website and going to outdoor Art Fairs. Both were successful; however, just as an FYI – lightweight items, such as jewelry, tend to go airborne in gusty winds. And it can get gusty in Florida. After the third weekend of chasing jewelry that was determined to be anywhere but on our table, we decided to look into other options. We tried renting space in an Art Gallery for a year, but lack of traffic put an end to that location. We’ll continue to look into other venues for our products to be seen locally.
Since we first started, we’ve continued to add new items. Our home décor collection still has the resin coasters and Adirondack beach chairs, but we’ve also added deep-etched glass and ceramic items. Most of our deep-etched products continue to have the sea inspired theme, but we’ve discovered a lot of people would like the option to customize their order, so we’ve recently added a personalization feature. We’ve done personalized items for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, birth announcements, Christmas, Valentines, etc. We love working with clients and helping them create that perfect one of a kind gift for any occasion. Please keep us in mind the next time you’re looking for a unique gift.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Seaside Serenity Creations LLC. We have plans for introducing new products throughout the year and we hope you’ll continue to check in with us to see what we’ve added!
