My name is Amanda. I am a Southern California nature addict born and raised by the beach. This is where treasure hunting and doing every other outdoor activity imaginable became a reality. My inspiration for jewelry making came from my mother who has an amazing sense of jewelry style. And a huge collection ranging from vintage Native American tribes to local handmade items!
I had always collected sea glass, shells, and other gems found from nature. And on my first international trip to Bali Indonesia I felt the designs come alive. Every time I would look down at the blue coral and sea shell filled beaches, I would become entranced in all styles of jewelry I could make in my brain. So my journey began by wearing mostly items with natural holes and stringing them around my neck. It brought me so much joy knowing that I found these gems by myself and always had a piece of nature on me at all times. Later that year in 2014 I came up with the name ROOTSSEA. This name came from my love for the land and sea and for my love of reggae music. I hope to spread this love and awareness to keep our planet clean and educate in the process.
Now 4 years later I have traveled to 5 countries, many states in the US and hopefully many more to come. I am an adventurer and I hope to see the world and all it has to offer. There are so many amazing cultures to learn from and people to meet, I hope you will follow the adventure and support this art turned small business that I love and cherish....ROOTSSEA!
My collections reflect my love for the ocean and what the world has to offer. My goal is to share it with you!
