Artisan soaps made from luxurious oils and exotic butters with milks, creams and silk fibers; to the whimsy of glycerine soap creations. Full of fluffy bubbles and velvet lathers, once your skin it treated to handmade soap you will never go back. bytheSEAsoap was born out of the love of TSPink soap rocks some fifteen years ago. I found those soaps at a Nevada City Art Gallery and my obsession for beauty in a bar of soap began. I still have a small piece of that first soap! ~~Pam Mella~~

S.O.A.P. Panel for Fall at Bramble Berry

I would like to be part of this fragrance test. Bramble Berry soaping supplies are tried and true very reliable. It would be an honor to test run new fall fragrances. Keeping our fingers crossed!

Bramble Berry's wooden molds are fabulous and I couldn't do without them! This mold, the 18 bar Baltic Birch mold is professionally made by a furniture company! It is so versatile. I can make various shapes using this mold, from guest soaps and soapgems to standard bars and logs. It's all in how you use the dividers and accessories. I would recommend it if your are looking for a larger mold!
