Island art emerging from the Bahamas is truly rousing. For Alice Lambert, it’s more than a hobby. It’s “part of her being,” and it is beautiful.
We recently introduced you to our friend Norvell, the accomplished sea glass jewelry guru. Through her, we have met another incredible talent. It is just another example of how the coastal lifestyle does something to you, something amazing. We want to introduce Lisa Sylvester Sausen, who also lives in the Bahamas. Sadly, her home was destroyed by Hurricane Dorian in 2019 as well. They remained on the island for as long as possible, but despite her wishes, her husband insisted they flee in the middle of the night. The storm had stalled and just kept growing. It turned out to be a wise decision…
Along with everyone else on the island, Lisa and her husband began to rebuild. After helping with mold and debris removal, Lisa realized she could best help her “MacGyver” type husband by getting out of his way. Overall, they were without electricity for 456 days, so she started painting.
I could hardly wait to introduce you to my friend, Norvell. Known as “South Pause Island Girl” on Tik Tok, she makes exquisite jewelry from Bahamian sea glass. From Virginia originally, she is fortunate enough to have a home on Guana Cay, part of the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas. We LOVE catching her “lives” online every morning as she shares the breathtaking views of the sun rising from her wraparound porch while enjoying her coffee. (She’s also been known to share the gorgeous sunsets with a cocktail and a concert right there on her deck!)
