Artist in Residence: Santa Cruz Dream Inn

The Santa Cruz Dream Inn is classic California. It sits right on the beach, is adjacent to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and is on the site of Jack O’Neill’s first surf shop. Surf, sand, and sun. What more could you ask for?

To represent this Joie de Vivre location, I created three neon sea glass pendant necklaces. What’s more beachy than sea glass? It literally comes from the ocean! Each piece is totally unique, shaped by the same waves you can hear from your room at the Dream Inn. I splashed each one with a pop of color to give it that vibrant feeling of late-summer sunshine and all the fun that comes with it.
