My name is Vadis Martinez and I love to crochet.  Not your grandma’s crochet but hip and modern crochet. From earrings to halter tops,  I can take that old granny square and bring it into the NOW.

I learned to crochet when I was 12,but at 12 it just seemed like a chore so I never pursued it. Until my best friend, Anisa, got pregnant in 2011. I was determined to make her new baby a blanket, and I did. From there it became an obsession, a love that I still have.

The Beach and Beyond is currently offering earrings, barefoot sandals and handbags. My earrings are light so if you love big you don’t have to worry about them being heavy. Barefoot sandals are great for pilates, yoga or just lounging about. Every girl needs a handbag, my clutches are one of a kind upcycled placemats and my granny bottom bags can be custom made to a specific color scheme.

All of my items are handmade by me right here in San Diego. I use acrylic and cotton yarns so the pallet of colors are endless.

Much  and Many Blessings,

Vadis Martinez
