My last Seaside post is about La Vie est Belle Pearls. It is a little surfer-gypsy style shop in Seaside that owner Wendy Mignot and her husband Jean-Noel create the loveliest necklaces, bracelets and earrings made from hand rolled leather and pearls. The pearl and leather necklaces are like a calling card that you have been to Seaside. You'll likely find them slung around the hottest surfers and the chicest travelers. They seem to symbolize membership to a very cool club. In addition to the necklaces, La Vie est Belle has the softest leather fringe purses, and some fabulous local art. It’s an experience for any hippie chick who loves great finds and great stories.
