I’ve been doing a bit of indulging myself lately, focusing more on sea glass art than jewelry. While I enjoy creating both, I really enjoy creating art, especially playing with the frames. I like to customize each one, refinishing them to enhance the overall piece. It is the perfect finishing touch and really adds to the uniqueness of each one.
This is a very simple design, and one created by many sea glass artisans, flowers. It’s my first piece creating flowers. I made it even more unique using aqua sea glass and hand finishing the frame. I also added a sweet bumble bee with glittering wings. I used sea glass that I handpicked in Northern California and yes, that is a small piece of sea pottery used as the center of the larger flower.
This piece is available for sale locally at EL & Company, an artisan shop in Pasadena, Maryland.
OK you guys, it’s February 4th and the pressures on! Just kidding, but, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and your Sweetheart will be expecting something unique, thoughtful and beautiful. How about a unique one-of-a-kind gift created with sea glass? There is no gal out there who wouldn’t love a beautiful piece of sea glass jewelry.
These fabulous sea glass pendant and earring sets are created with jewelry quality sea glass and sterling silver. The beautiful hearts are pewter. They are certainly one-of-a-kind and beautiful!
The “xoxo” and “loved” charms are sterling silver, as are the necklaces. All of these pendants and earrings have been created with amazing pastel sea glass handpicked by me in California. These pendants have been best sellers for the Valentine’s Day!
Some of these designs are available locally at two artisan shops, Side Street Framers & Gift Gallery in Severna Park, Maryland and EL & Co. in Pasadena, Maryland. There are more beautiful sea glass jewelry sets, perfect for Valentine’s Day gifts available in my Etsy shop.
If you’ve been following this blog you have read about my many sea glass christmas ornaments, more specifically my Vermont Inspired Sea Glass Snowflakes. They have been extremely popular in the Maryland artisan shops that carry my work, my Etsy shop and as Christmas gifts for my family and friends.
Even better is that Side Street Framers & Gift Gallery in Severna Park, Maryland has asked to carry them year round and they are also offered for sale in Vermont at Slopeside Okemo Vacation Rentals in Ludlow – Okemo Mountain!
Every year I enjoy creating Christmas ornaments with my sea glass. While my sea glass and sand filled ornaments, mentioned in the post below, are always popular sellers, it’s fun to create new items. This year it’s my Vermont Inspired Snowflakes.
I have based these keepsake ornaments on the photography of Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley who lived in Jericho, Vermont. In 1885 Wilson Bentley took the first photograph of a single snowflake crystal. In his life he took over 5,000 photos and found no two to be exactly alike.
These unique snowflakes are created with a generous eighteen pieces of sea glass that was handpicked by me from the shore at Fort Bragg, California. I use a variety of decorative pearl beads, crystal beads and metal accents. They hang from a white ribbon.
These sea glass snowflake ornaments make a perfect gift as they are presented in a lovely silver box that includes the story of Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley. These are true keepsakes.
Due to their popularity only a limited number are available in my Etsy shop. If you shop locally in Anne Arundel County, Maryland you can find them at these artisan shops:
EL & Co. in Pasadena, Maryland
Side Street Framers & Gift Gallery, Severna Park, Maryland.
Every year I enjoy making Christmas ornaments using sea glass. These lovely ornaments have been very popular and have been best sellers for a few years now.
I have filled these ornaments with sea glass handpicked by me from the shores of Fort Bragg, California and some also have a bit of sand from my favorite Caribbean Island, Anguilla. Along with the decorative ribbons they include artistic ornament hangers. They are offered in beautiful gift boxes, a perfect Christmas present ready to give!
As they are very fragile I do not offer them in my Etsy shop but do offer them in two artisan shops in Maryland, EL & Company in Pasadena and Side Street Framers & Gift Gallery in Severna Park.
