Our Story

Hi! I’m Anne, owner of Secret Beach Designs.

 

I live in Port Dalhousie, Ontario with my husband, two children and dog.

During 2020, like so many others, a walk became a part of my family’s daily routine. At the time, my kids (5 & 7) loved looking for treasures! Our walks evolved into treasure hunts in our neighbourhood. On one of our many adventures we discovered what we love to call “Secret Beach”. It quickly became one of our favourite places, not just for the peacefulness, but for the many treasures we would find.

 

We would spend hours combing the beach and our beach glass collection quickly grew.

 

I wanted to share the beauty of the treasures that we found, creating recycled handmade jewelry from otherwise forgotten pieces of glass. Each piece of beach glass that we use is unique and handpicked.

Every piece of glass used is one less piece of trash in our lakes.
