Shaped by the sea, Handcrafted with love.


My Creative Space
Where designs become reality

The workshop is my creative space where the excitement of transforming a piece of sea glass into a beautiful item of jewellery begins.

After searching for sea glass on the beach I enjoy going to into the workshop to examine all my finds and begin to work on designs. Each piece of sea glass is unique in shape and I like to keep true to this by incorporating this into each design.

I take pride in using the best, carefully selected pieces of glass and high quality, recycled sterling silver or fine silver for intricate wire work.

Over the years I refined a number of techniques and processes, working with a variety of tools and equipment to carefully handcraft the silver and sea glass together. Each stage of this requires attention to detail and patience but it’s an incredibly satisfying  journey, recycling the sea glass and seeing my designs become reality.

Creating A Heart of Glass
A Lovingly Handcrafted Journey

The journey to here started in 2014 when I began collecting sea glass and making jewellery which I sold at the Sark Folk Festival under the name ‘Sarah Jane Art’. The ‘Heart of Glass’ design was created in the summer of 2017 as a signature piece to celebrate the launch of my new brand and venture as a sea glass & silver jewellery artist.

The shape is a version of my ‘Heart of Glass’ logo, inspired by the beautiful Guernsey coastlines and the connection the jewellery has with the sea. The top of the heart represents the rolling waves of the Guernsey coast washing over the sea glass celebrating natures part in shaping this piece of jewellery. The heart signifies the love that I have for the island and it’s stunning natural environments.

The process of transforming a piece of glass into an item of jewellery is complex and requires attention to detail throughout but is ultimately extremely rewarding. Below is a step-by-step portfolio of how I made this piece.
