Sarah Thomas, Artisan Nature and Whimsy Handmade Jewelry's Profile

About

I've had my toes in the sand for longer than I can remember. Living on the Chesapeake Bay set the scene for my artistic eye. I create using only authentic Sea Glass from the west coast of England, shells, sand, driftwood, other natural materials such as dried and pressed flowers and wire wrapped jewelry.
