‘The World Cup, California’s amazing sunshine, and a yen for Brother’s Burritos were some of the few things that got me outside yesterday. But what really stopped me from my regular stroll on the Hermosa Beach boardwalk was the Hermosa Beach ArtWalk.

Almost 100 local artists are here for the weekend displaying their talents. What better way to celebrate living by the ocean than walking around in fresh air, supporting the local art? Well, I can think of one thing that would have made my walk better- it’s cold, bubbly, has a little froth on top, and rhymes with cheer :)

My favorite artist of the day, which is for all you new moms, moms to be, and baby shower goers, is local husband and wife duo, Grant and Mindy Searcey with Searcey Designs. This multi talented couple has something shiny for you to drool over and something Star Wars-ey for your hubby to beg for.

Their design of jewelry, specifically their Birthstone Bars, are the perfect gift for yourself or someone else. Silver or Gold bars are adorned with your baby’s birthstone and stamped with his/her name and meaning of the stone. They have been featured on TV shows and blogs all over the country. With this kind of popularity, I don’t count on them being at the ArtWalk next year. Get down there today and check them out!

Next door to this designer jeweler, you will find Grant’s one of a kind paintings. His “highly stylized renditions of the George Lucas characters” are being reproduced and distributed worldwide. Check out theĀ  photo I have below andĀ  get down to see his work in person. Otherwise, you’ll have to hop over to Toronto, London, Sydney, New York, Chicago or San Francisco where his work is on tour!
