Sea Glass & Sea Pottery Sail Boat Art

I was very lucky to be able to purchase eight sea glass and sea pottery sail boat sets from California. I have decided to create a “collection” I am calling “Smooth Sailing”. Each piece will be one-of-a-kind, including the nautical background and frames which are re-finished by hand by me to accent each piece.

I live near the Chesapeake and I think these will sell very well. I am offering them for sale locally in Pasadena, Maryland at EL & Company on Mountain Road. These are the first three pieces.

Anguilla Sea Glass & Sun Sets

We just returned from a fabulous vacation to my favorite place, the island of Anguilla.

This was my 12th visit to the island. My first visit was in 1994. Needless to say there have been some changes, but the beautiful beaches and friendly people remain the same.

This was my husband and my 6th stay at the fabulous Cuisinart Golf Resort & Spa. While there are other and newer accommodations on the island, I can say that none of them have a stretch of beach that have the fabulous breezes and solitude of Rendezvous Bay. This is the magic of the Cuisinart and their new resort The Reef, which sits on Merrywing Bay. These resorts were built to draw you right down to the beaches. But it only makes sense when your resorts sit on the best beaches on the island that you take advantage of them! While The Reef is sleek and modern, The Cuisinart will transport you to Greece. The Reef, The Cuisinart and their shared golf course sit among hundreds of acres of manicured lush tropical gardens.

After a dozen visits to the island and enjoying some amazing dining in all the “best” restaurants (Straw Hat, Veya, Blanchards, Olivers, Mango’s etc.) we’ve found the best and most consistent quality meals and service are to be had at the resorts. And, when you’re spending $125 and up for a meal you want the best. We have yet to find a restaurant that matches the service or food at the Santorini at Cuisinart, although the food at The Reef restaurant called The Yacht Club ran a very close second. (No, I’m not a paid spokesperson, just a very happy customer!)

I found my first piece of Anguilla sea glass on Rendezvous Bay in 2013. It’s this beautiful green bonfire.

Oh, and about those sunsets. I don’t think there is a better view of the sunset than on Mead’s Bay.

Fort Bragg California Sea Glass

These are some of my sea glass finds from Fort Bragg California from a trip early this month. I’ve been very luck to visit there four times. Each trip I do see a difference in the glass. The pieces of sea glass on the beach are quite small, due to both people glassing over the years and the action of Mother Nature bringing the glass up and down with the tides since the early 1900′s when it was a landfill. These beaches provide fabulous pastel colors that are amazingly smoothed and frosted that are not found on any other beaches.

A Fabulous Sea Glassing Find ~ An Old Green Bottle Neck Raises More Questions Than Answers!!

I was lucky to go sea glassing a few days ago. The day was quite overcast, but at least warm.  Spring is coming!

I found a lot of interesting pieces, and in particular one beautiful bottle neck. This amazing piece is obviously old. It has two metals strips embedded in the neck. I am trying to find out it’s origin and age.  I’ve done dozens of searches online and lots of reading and still no luck!

If by chance anyone knows about this type of bottle please contact me on my FB page – http://www.facebook.com/seaglassvisions.  Thanks!!

Mermaid and Sea Glass Art!

I’ve been having a great time playing with my sea glass in a new way.  While I truly enjoy creating lovely sea glass jewelry I have found another fun way to use my sea glass by creating sea glass art!

I created a lovely Mermaid art piece in a picture frame. This lovely Mermaid has special meaning for me too. When I was a child I was given a book of Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales. This picture was the picture in the book that accompanied the story “The Little Mermaid”.

Along with the sea glass I used a variety of sea shells found by me on the Caribbean island of Anguilla as well as sand a lovely sand dollar that was found by me in the Bahamas!

I plan to be offering this and other pieces of Mermaid Art in my Etsy shop in late Spring 2015. Please make sure you stop by and visit! SeaGlassVisions
