Hand Painted Sea Glass Jewelry

I am thrilled to be offering beautiful and original hand painted sea glass jewelry in my Etsy shop and at my craft fairs! The pendants are painted by my childhood friend, Kate Cocoros, also known at Painter Kate.

Kate is a very talented artist and has a wonderful and whimsical style that perfectly compliments my jewelry style.

Kate paints these lovely pendants on frosted white jewelry quality California sea glass with acrylic paints and the surface is sealed. I then wire wrap bails and add decorate beading and necklaces.

Below are just some of the fabulous designs that are available!

Greetings and Happy Summer!

It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted on this blog. Even with me focusing more on my Sea Glass Visions Facebook page and Etsy shop and creating jewelry there still doesn’t seem to be enough time. A lot has been going on.

This past winter I took classes in silver smithing with Jen Soderberg Straub at Mad Tom Studios in East Dorset, Vermont. I was able to create three pieces during these classes, the final one with a piece of sea glass. I hope to take more classes this coming winter. Right now due to lack of space at my home studio (family room) I don’t plan to offer custom sterling designs, but I hope to be able to someday!

Since May of this year I have started selling in a new consignment shop, Side Street Framers & Art Gallery in Pasadena, Maryland. I’m particularly excited about this as I am selling my beautiful jewelry quality sea glass on sterling silver as “Sea Glass Visions by Cathy Kelly”.
