A Nautical Bohemia...Beachdashery® is a jewelry line created by the sand and the sea. Our first jewelry collection was launched in 2004 and inspired by the colors and the textures of the beach and the sea. At Beachdashery, we value sustainable production and protecting the environment. We also embody the spirit of our "Sand and Sea Inspired" motto through the design of our natural materials into nautically beautiful jewelry. Each item is handmade with an emphasis on beach style and coastal life. We LOVE what we do.
We apply the use of natural materials such as beach sand, sea shells, and sea glass naturally found on the shore.
Our products are handmade in our studio in South Portland Maine. We distribute domestically and internationally to gift shops, department stores, specialty stores, museums, and boutiques.
Beachdashery® is a division of Boheme Chic LLC.
Kate is from Deerfield Beach in Florida and spent every day after school at the beach collecting shells and playing in the sand. She left Florida as a teenager and embraced Portland Maine as her new home. She spent everyday at the nearby beaches and it became the one constant that made her whole. As she grew older, she saw the beauty in sea glass, seashells, and beach sand in her jewelry designs. She went on to college to study Computer Science at the University of Southern Maine and New Media/Graphic Design at Maine College of Art. During this time, designing and making jewelry became a hobby as she sold her jewelry at craft fairs in Boston, Providence, and Portsmouth. Eventually the demand for her jewelry increased and she left her career as a tax accountant and QuickBooks ProAdvisor to pursue her dream.
During her first year of business, her jewelry line was picked up in over 90 shops across the country. She's been growing her jewelry brand ever since. She is fearless, creative, and embodies her free spirit. Subscribe to her newsletter to keep up with the latest news about Kate and specials in the shop.
