I’m totally addicted to sea glass: from hunting for it, drilling it, and designing with it.
I make jewelry and mosaics from artist-sourced Washington State sea glass. In addition to the sea glass, my jewelry may contain artist hammered fine silver and gold wire, gemstones, freshwater pearls and vintage chandelier crystals. Not all of my jewelry contains sea glass, but it still is “sea themed” in color, components, and/or style. All my sea glass is authentic, however, if pieces from Agate Pass are too rough or sharp, I will acid bath or grind them to get rid of the unsafe edges.
My sea glass mosaics are done on existing items, just as frames, boxes, mirrors or vintage windows. I often make my own chalk paint and paint the items to give them a rustic look, like a seaside cottage. I adhere my found sea glass and sea pottery on the items, then grout to give it a sandy shore look and feel.
