Santa Barbara Beach Co. is another adorable Etsy Shop selling hand-crafted sea glass and stone jewelry, and driftwood decor collected right from our local beaches. If you are looking for a unique gift for a special bridesmaid or friend you might want to consider one of their sweet heart stone necklaces or a delicate pair of sea glass earrings.
This custom invitation suite by Zenadia Design has such a nostalgic romantic feel, with the soft hues of pink and gold, and just a whisper of vintage French. To see the beautiful inspiration board for this design be sure to visit the Zenadia Design Blog!
