Neon Sea Glass

Our Artist in Residence, Megan Roy, dreams up creative projects inspired by our hotels. This time, it’s the Santa Cruz Dream Inn, where you can take in Monterey Bay sunrises from your balcony, watch the surfers (or join them), and bond with your family at the famous boardwalk amusement park down the street.

The project? Neon sea glass pendants! Megan says, “This hotel is right on the beach, and what’s more beachy than sea glass? It literally comes from the ocean! Each piece is totally unique, shaped by the same waves you can hear from your room at the Dream Inn. I splashed each one with a pop of color to give it that vibrant feeling of late-summer sunshine and all the fun that comes with it.”

About the artist: Megan Roy is an illustrator, designer, and s’mores enthusiast from New Hampshire currently living in Los Angeles. While Megan’s favorite medium is pen on paper, she has spent time working in film and television, photography, and on large-scale installations. She has been decorating the world since 1986. You can see more of her work on Instagram and on her site, and you can purchase these pieces in her Etsy shop.
