I love the ocean - since I was a kid I've picked up pieces of surf-tossed natural sea glass (beach glass) - I called them "gems from the sea" or "pieces of the past"

I also collect unique driftwood pieces, and love to wire-wrap the sea glass and hang it from the driftwood. Then I fill up the porch windows! I sometimes offer pieces in my shop and take custom orders anytime -

Custom requests for particular gemstones are welcome - my collection has grown too large for me to handle and some gems need new homes ! Contact me if you are looking for a particular genuine gemstone...pictures provided on request...

Here in Maine, I live high on a Ridge overlooking Passamaquoddy Bay. Mine is the last town in the U.S. on the North Atlantic Ocean...Canada is a stone's throw away -
I truly am lucky to be living here!

The stars are so close at night - it feels as if you could reach up and touch them.....Looking East, this year's Supermoon(s) lit up a golden pathway across the water and were larger than life - lighting up our whole home and yard.....incredible and breath-taking up here on the ridge -

I'm glad you stopped by -

Custom orders are great -
I would love to hear from you!
