June Bead of the Month: The beach bead reminds you to let the sea bring you tranquility.
About the Bead: "I am lucky to live near the ocean and I think every day you can spend at the beach is a good day. I have found being around the water makes me happier, calmer, and feeling healthier. Not everyone can be around the ocean all the time, so when creating these beads I was attempting to bring the ocean to the person wearing it." - Jackie Marr, Bead Artist
