Shop Gems By The Sea: Abbot Kinney Fest Favorites

The Abbot Kinney Festival offers unique Southern California pieces to shop for home and body.

 It takes place annually on the last Sunday of September and is a free event with live music, delicious food trucks, and Abbot Kinney shops, kids areas, artisanal vendors, and beer gardens.

Inspired by the love for the sea, Washed Ashore Adornments is a gorgeous jewelry brand in Los Angeles, CA. Its jewelry is casted in downtown LA’s jewelry district, while the assembly and wire-wrapping is done in its Manhattan Beach, CA studio.
Rather than collect their gems from the earth, Washed Ashore Adornments creates their own gems. They believe that the “cold-molding” process of making gems is “more eco-conscious than mass collecting organic matters from the sea that are already scarce.”

Nerina Necklace is perhaps my favorite piece. The name is Greek for “sea nymphs” and it features hand wire-wrapped pearls and delicate chain. Follow them on Instagram

Herbs + Oils Bath

Minimal, Impassioned Self Care, Herbs + Oils Bath is a natural skin care and beauty company, founded by mother/daughter duo Pamela and Ashley Dion in their Gainesville kitchen.

Each product is formulated in-house with careful research about how each ingredient affects the product and skin type it is formulated for.

All products are made for a specific reason and every ingredient has a benefit and therapeutic effect. Each product has active ingredients beneficial to your specific skin type without adding unnecessary complexity with fillers.

Their Brighten Face Oil is a vegan skincare face serum made of jasmine and other essential oils.

Check out their Etsy shop here.

Banter & Bliss creates deliciously fragrant, high-quality soy candles. Their soy candles are made of all natural soy and coconut wax blends.
Their wicks are free of lead and zinc and use coreless, cotton wicks.
AVENIDA DE COTAI Soy Candle is a medley of citrus, spice, and jasmine.
Their soy wax is made from soy beans grown by American Farmers and their candles are scented using phthalate-free fragrances and essential oils.


Tania Dress in Black

Perfect for a breezy afternoon in Venice Beach, the Tania Dress features thin straps that cross across the bust to create a dramatic keyhole effect. It has a higher hem in the front and a deep-V neckline in the back. Part of the debut sustainable line, this dress has been made entirely from found deadstock fabric in Downtown, Los Angeles. Named after the first American woman to sail around the world, you’ll feel pretty, powerful, and proud about where your dress came from.

I also adored the Capulet Baby Blues Overall Dress.

Abbot Kinney offers so many cute items. Tell us in the comments, where are your favorite places to shop in Southern California? We’d love to know!
