In 2004, friends and family encouraged Flori Nelson to turn her hobby of jewelry designing into a business and it's a good thing she listened. Today, 10 years later, Flori's thrives at 359 Thames ST. in Newport, where Flori sells her unique sea glass jewelry designs and other lovely jewelry, glassware, personal care products and clothing.
With a focus on the allure and charm provided by sea glass, Flori designs beautiful earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings in an attractive array of colors.
People love the fact that this jewelry is made here in Newport.
They love the idea that they are getting somthing that is specific to this area. That is why I design, make and sell many items that have coastal themes".
Flori and her family hunts for sea glass on Rhode Island beaches, but she also purchases some of her sea glass because it has become harder to find. Flori has customers all over the world, and her store in Newport has become a destination for many.
