Naturally sourced handcrafted gifts for a special someone
By Amanda Lisk
THROUGH the eyes of an artisan, the beach
is a treasure trove of endless possibilities.
Salt from the Dead Sea brings healing
powers to Mama’s Secret Handmade
Skincare. Barnacles and sea turtles are sculpted into
BeSalty Studio pottery. Sea Bones Jewelry draws
inspiration from ocean waters and coral reefs,
while Speshell Creations uses shells and sea glass
collected on the shores of North Carolina to create
delicate pictures that reflect the coast.
Each of these craftswomen showcases authentic
ways to express love for a special someone in the
form of a handmade gift.
