San Onofre: Named for the incredible California beaches where Amanda grew up.

Surf. Sand. Sunsets.
San Onofre is a surfing beach in San Diego - started in the 1920's.  It even had a nudity section back in the day!  But since Camp Pendelton took over part of the beach for military training - nudity is a big no no.  The sunsets are incredible!  I'll let you wonder if I ever saw one nude :)

ONLY a few left!  I am almost out of these delicate little sunshine teardrop beads.

  • 1" long yellow oblong bead
    • Each hand blown glass bead was then painted with platinum then 24k gold.  Almost 100 years has given the gold a satin sheen.
  • 2" long 14k rose gold wire
  • Hand pounded on one end to hold bead.
  • Rounded and filed on the other to create an ear wire
Custom retro jewelry is available.

BAUHAUS BEADS

These beads are composed of hand blown German glass in the Bauhaus style during the 1920’s.  The innovative design studio was breaking ground in the new “Modernism” industrial ideology making art more vivid. 
Their bold ideas led the way to Impressionism, Pop Art  & Minimalism. These gorgeous beads range from interlocking oviform in frosted neon to multi-faceted round intense sapphire painted with 24k gold.  

During WWII the factory was bombed reducing it to rubble.  Designers vanished.  Molds broken.  It was decades later when the family went to rebuild, the beads were found in the debris.  
Since they cannot be reproduced, the 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.
 
All retro jewelry is designed by Amanda Uber using the rare beads along with the principles of Bauhaus, Pop Art and Minimalism as inspiration.
