Seaglassing Along the Coast in Sounio, Greece

One of the amazing tours we took on a recent visit to Greece was one from Athens to Sounio. We traveled to Sounio to visit the Temple of Poseidon.

(A wonderful coincidence was that our sail ended in Lavrio which is very close to Sounio, so not only did we see the temple on land, we were able to see the temple from the water. It was amazing and I can imagine how majestic and glorious it must have been for the ancient sailors to see.)

Our tour was an eight hour one which included a lovely ride along the coast heading to Sounio. We passed many beaches along the way. We also stopped at a seafood restaurant called The Akrogiali Restaurant – Fish Tavern, which was located on the water which had a very rocky beach. Well, I don’t have to tell you the first thing we did as out lunch was being prepared. A picture is worth a thousand words…

Greek Sea Pottery Jewelry

I enjoy working with both sea glass and sea pottery!  Sea pottery from Greece tends to be very colorful and happy with fun patterns.  I created these lovely pieces using sea pottery found in Rhodes, Greece. In order to keep their organic feel I have hung them from leather cording. They are available in Maryland at EL & Company in Pasadena, Maryland.
