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!
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”.
