An artisan jewelry journey in color, texture and fun. Beaded jewelry with handcrafted sterling silver is my focus and joy.

Tropical Flava

A Canadian transplanted to tropical Belize, the Etsy artist behind Coconut Palm Designs uses her creative energies and graphic design capabilities to craft signs and ACEOs (collectable small format art cards). The cheery "Welcome" sign is carved, handpainted, and sealed against the elements. What a happy way to greet your guests to your space.

I especially love this bright, colored-pencil ACEO of a tropical wildflower from Belize. I can only imagine what a different world Belize must seem for a Canadian. These art cards are fun to collect, as they are the size of a playing card (2.5X3.5 inches), and yet are original works of art. Coconut Palm signs and dates all of her cards on the back so that you can be assured of owning an original.

To see more of this artist, do drop by her shop, and read more about her on her blog.
