I'm lucky to have the beach outside my front door. I'll get lost out there for hours hunting for sea glass, shells and other sea creatures.

I'm Betsy, and the big guy's Andy. We met on the beach and we've since made it our home.

After one of our vacations, I made my first sea glass mosaic - just a basic one covering a picture frame. Andy encouraged me to create new pieces with my glass - "Make a tortuga", "Make a seahorse" - and on and on. And so I did.

Over time I've figured out the beaches nearby (and far away) that have the best of everything - this one for sea fans, that one for scallop shells, over there for urchins, this way for sea glass. It's always an adventure though, and I wouldn't want to do anything else.

Marea Baja Designs is my way of bringing the ocean into everyone's homes. My art evokes the full beach experience - the sun, the sand and the sea. That's why I use only repurposed materials: wood that's been weathered from all the lives it's already lived; shells we find on our journeys along the Pacific coast; and sea glass that's been tumbled in the surf and not by machines.

Marea Baja Designs is located in San Clemente, CA and is inspired everything about the sea. I literally take 'long walks on the beach' on a daily basis to curate my shop.

All pieces are made from reclaimed wood - primarily old fencing, but also other wood cast-offs. My artwork is therefore naturally weathered and may have holes or other rustic details, but have been cleaned up and sanded before they make it to your home.

All sea glass is authentic and was found by me on the beach. None of my sea glass has ever been machine-tumbled.

Thank you so much for stopping by my site!

Drips on the edges of the piece
Variations in thickness of the seal (some rough spots or patches) on the front or bumps in the seal on the front of the piece
Drips on the back of the piece
Lines in the seal
Flaws in sea glass pieces - for example, smudges, bonfire glass, bumps
