Dockweiler: Named for the breathtaking California coastline where Amanda grew up.

Just below LAX lays pristine sand, sunny skies and cool breezes.  The perfect soft landing spot for newbie hang gliders.  Stick around.  Dockweiler is one of the very few beaches where bonfires are allowed.

Gorgeous 2 sided hand blown glass beads made during the 1920's cubist Bauhaus movement in Germany. Each side was then painted with platinum followed by 24k gold.  After almost 100 years, the gold is rubbing off creating a glistening matte gold sheen.

    STORY OF THE BEADS

    The beads used are composed of hand blown German glass from a glassworks studio in Sudetenland with the Bauhaus style popular during the 1920's.

    During WWII the glassworks factory was bombed reducing it to rubble. The designer disappeared and molds broken. Decades later when the family went to rebuild, the beads were found in the debris.

    Since they cannot be reproduced, these beads are rare and highly prized.

    My husband and I were traveling through Europe when fate intervened and we met the family over dinner. By dessert, I had purchased as much of the collection as possible.

    Each design is handmade by me using 14k gold fill, sterling silver or pure silk.
