I've been gathering sea glass since I was a small girl growing up in beautiful Cape Breton. There’s nothing more soothing than strolling the beaches, keeping an eye out for that little splash of colour among the rocks and sand. If you come collecting with me, we won't leave until we're tired and our backs ache from stooping, but I promise it will be worth it!
Sea Glass is a piece of glass, pottery, or china that has been tumbled on the ocean floor, smoothed by the waves and sand, and washed up on the shore a jewel, waiting to be found by a lucky passerby. The beauty of sea glass is that each piece has its own story of how it came to be in the sea, shaped by nature and then found again, waiting to begin its second life as a piece of bespoke jewelry.
My attic studio is in my one hundred year old home in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, where I work fueled by tea and music. And more tea.
