OCEAN GROVE, NJ — It’s been a charmed life lately for Serenity by the Sea’s Sarah Taylor Izzo.

At her specialty gift shop at 53 Main Avenue in Ocean Grove, she has introduced an expansive line of “design-your-own” keychains, necklace and bracelets, with hundreds of different styles and shapes of charms from which to choose.

“We have so many charms, there’s something for everyone — to fit their personality, to symbolize what they love, to express a thought, to tell their story,” said Izzo. “The new jewelry line adds yet another dimension to the delightful and zenful merchandise that makes Serenity by the Sea such a special place in this charming seashore town.”

These personalized creations are ideal for celebrating a birthday, anniversary, graduation or “just because.” And this time of year, custom-designed keychains are popular back-to-school gifts.

At Serenity by the Sea, it’s always about creating beautiful things and introducing specialty items that includes handcrafted and fair trade treasures, one-of-a-kind artwork, eco-friendly merchandise, and personal care items to relieve stress and promote relaxation.
