Set between the award-winning Rose Garden at Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara and the Resort’s Jungle Pool, The Spa, designed by world famous Peter Marino, a sophisticated contemporary décor melds with traditional Spanish colonial architecture and finishes to create a uniquely fresh and classic environment.

Spacious at 12,000 sq.ft., the Spa features an upper level relaxation space, expansive locker rooms with sauna and steam room, and eleven lavish treatment rooms.

In this treatment dull skin is gently exfoliated, releasing a natural glow. The antioxidizing and relaxing benefits of grape seed are enhanced with rose gel, followed by a wine essential oil during a full body massage.

Why Buy Handmade?
Because it is the work of an Artisan, his/her feelings, thoughts, ideas, emotions, so much goes into artisanal work. You see the finished piece, but this piece was born out of an idea sparked by a color, a shape, a thought, it slowly took form, many times it goes through a long transformation process as the artisan encounters road blocks and has to recreate his/her path to the finished product.  Sometimes that product differs vastly from the artisan original idea, but in the end it is with pride and joy that said piece is offered to you, no matter what your taste or feelings about it, it is that artisan’s greatest form of expression.
 
When you buy truly hand made products you buy unique pieces of art, sometimes even exclusive, something that only YOU have. I have many pieces that were made only once, and none of my jewelry is mass produced. My store remains small and I never duplicate any item more than a few times, so they will always remain unique.
 
They are carefully hand made from beginning to end, with high quality materials, and techniques that I have perfected with hours of practice over the years. My knots are steady and uniform, my pieces are made to last.  They are light weight, soft, colorful and can be both elegant, and casual.
So enjoy a piece of Art made by Han. Visit: knotsandsparklez.com and TheArtisanGroup.org.
