After many years being tumbled by the ocean, sea glass transforms from trash to treasure as once sharp edges become beautifully smooth contours with a lightly frosted surface that is unique to each piece.
Scouring the coastline for these shiny gems is an enjoyable but addictive pursuit and in many ways quite soulful as time often slips away whilst I focus on the tiniest details in the sand. Spotting a flash of colourful glass amongst seaweed, sand and shells is exciting and like discovering a new piece of missing treasure. I love that each piece of glass has a degree of mystique, each with a history and secrets that we will never know.
The individuality and uniqueness of each piece of seaglass is special and it’s important to me that I preserve this in my work and incorporate it into the design of each piece of jewellery. As a consequence, every piece of jewellery made is completely unique with it’s own colour and character.
