There Is Still Time To Shop for Unique New Jersey Made Gifts
I am a gift giver that really thinks about the gifts that I give. I try to find gifts that are unique, one-of-a-kind, and true to the person that I am giving it to. In my searches, I have found that there are some really great local companies that carry just what I’m looking for. They are all unique in their own ways, and definitely something that your special someone would love to receive.
Beautiful Sea Glass Jewelry From Wave of Life
Chakra Sea Glass Beaded Energy Healing Yoga Seven 7 Boho Chic Lotus Mala Bracelet by Wave of Life™ $29.00
This sea glass Chakra Bracelet contains all 7 Chakra colors. A perfect way to remember to stay balanced throughout your day. Each chakra color is represented by 7 sea glass beads of each individual color. One end of the bracelet, at the end of the red chakra, contains a lotus flower charm. These 6mm beads have been lovingly tumbled to create beautiful sea glass beads to wear and treasure. This bracelet is a wrap bracelet created from memory wire and will maintain its shape.
Working full-time for Rizzieri Salons, Spa, and Schools over the years, I’ve been introduced to many different beauty and wellness brands. I’ve had the pleasure of learning a lot about sensory journeys and chakra products. Since I have recently learned about the different chakras and have seen the personal affects of them in my own body, I love this bracelet. It is absolutely stunning and gorgeous. It is a perfect gift.
Ocean Wave Necklace Mixed Sea Glass Caribbean Blue Cobalt Sterling Silver Locket Necklace Summer Style Boho Beach by Wave of Life™ $43.00
Our Wave of Life locket with a beautiful combo of Caribbean Blue and Cobalt Blue sea glass. Wear this locket to remind yourself that no matter where you are in life, embrace it and keep riding! A perfect way to carry a bit of the sea with you always. This listing is for a sterling silver lotus locket which includes a sterling silver 18 inch wave design chain. Locket and necklace chain are sterling silver. How many pieces each locket holds will vary according to their size & to make sure they fit nicely in the locket.
Growing up in Southern NJ my entire life, I fondly remember the summer vacations my family used to take to the Jersey Shore. The days that I would spend in the sun and the sand always come back to me when I think of summer. I can remember spending hours at a time as a child in the ocean at Ocean City. This beautiful custom locket evokes those wonderful memories and is a perfect reminder of carefree days.
Blue Sea Glass Anchor Nautical Necklace by Wave of Life™ $17.00
A piece of cobalt blue sea glass and a pretty little silver anchor create this one of a kind nautical necklace. With this, you may always have a bit of the sea wherever you go. This piece comes attached to a bit of waxed cotton cord for an earthy, boho chic look (simply tie in a little bow).
My youngest sister has a love for all things nautical. She is very fond of anchors, and truth be told we actually have matching anchor tattoos on our feet. She got hers first, and then I wanted one as well. I got mine for her, because she has always been someone in my life that has “anchored” me and helped me hold it together. I love this piece for her and know that it will be a perfect gift. Not to mention, she is engaged and getting married – this would be a beautiful “something blue” piece that would be able to go on her bouquet.

I received this beautiful sterling silver design that is accented with a nautical rope detail surrounding beach sand from Cape May and layered to a glass-like, domed finish. I chose Cape May as it was at the Cape May Lighthouse where my husband asked me to marry him. It is a very special place for us, not only was it where he asked me to begin our life together as husband and wife, it was also where he took me on our first “official” date, where we started off our relationship. I cherish this beautiful statement piece and wear it daily.
