Sea Glass in the #SpringSale

5th May 2016

As you know I’m having a Spring Sale until the end of May with lots of items reduced that must sell. If they don’t they’ll be dismantled and I’ll melt down the silver and recycle it into something else – that’s not a threat, that’s just the reality of me havintg to make room for new work.

So today I’m going to focus on the lovely unique pieces of Sea Glass jewellery that are in the sale. I source my sea glass on the east coast of Scotland – the Fife coast to be precise. I walk on the beaches here every day and there’s quite a history of glassmaking in this area, from the glass works that used to run down in Pettycur Bay to the glass works at Wymess Caves a bit further north.

Waste glass used to be dumped into the sea and it’s been swished about for years and years by the incoming and outgoing tides and polished and smoothed in the process. I find such beautiful pieces that are hard to resist and I always come home with pockets full of sea glass – so much so that I now have boxes and jars overflowing with the stuff.

Anyway, I have great plans for a new collection working soley with green sea glass, so I want to make room in my tiny studio to accomodate new pieces, so the old work is now on sale until the end of the month.

Here’s a selection (all images link directly to the pieces in my online shop):
