Hope everyone had a great weekend. We spent our weekend relaxing, it was much-needed!
On Friday I enjoyed a few hours with my friend Mrs. Erika S. Washington, she is the founder of Create’ve Path Luminaries which is based in Okinawa. She makes amazing Luminaries, sea inspired shadow boxes and whitewashed wreaths + much more.
About Create’ve Path Beach Art, Luminaries:
Create’ve Path Luminaries are handcrafted and one of a kind. The Skeleton Coral used, is unique to Okinawa and is rarely found on Beaches around the world.
I only use Coral, Sea Glass, and Shells found on the Beaches of Okinawa or the surrounding Ryukyu Islands. The Sea Glass has tumbled in the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean for many years. It takes close to 50 years for the pieces to reach the “done” stage known to the Sea Glass Connoisseur. Nowadays, Sea Glass auctions are held and rare pieces are significant to the serious Sea Glass collector. You never know what kind of treasure will be included in one of my Luminaries.
Light a candle and let the magic happen, this little piece of art will always remind you of beautiful Okinawa.
Erika is currently working on establishing a social network for her Business and will be very happy if you follow her and leave a comment on her Facebook page.
