About

I make items using sea glass, sea shells, stained glass, natural and polished stones and beads!

My studio at our rural New Mexico home is full of my supplies. I have shelves with jars full of glass tiles, glass gems, and beads. One big cabinet is full of sheets of colorful stained glass. Smaller bins hold a huge supply of new and vintage beads. There are boxes full of stones, sea shells and sea glass I've picked up at beaches around the world. I have a stained glass cutting area, and a painting area.Another area by the windows is set up for photographing my finished items.

I start with a hand-painted base, or an up-cycled thrift shop find. I glue each piece of glass or tile on one at a time by hand, usually using a tweezers. I use dental picks to clean off excess glue. It's slow, painstaking work, but I love every minute of it! My items are mostly functional,but some are purely decorative. I adore adding beads to my creations. Some of them are covered with tiny seed beads! Sparkly beads are becoming my trademark.

My home is filled with vintage items. I am downsizing a bit and selling some of my vintage items in this shop. Many of them are sea or shell related.

I started the shop to have an outlet for my art. I am so thrilled to be sharing my art around the world, and I love knowing others are enjoying my work. :) Having this shop has made me excited to wake up every day and get to creating. I wish I'd opened my shop years earlier!

    Welcome to Sea Mosaics! I've always been fascinated by art and the sea.I lived on a remote island in the mid-Pacific. Living by the sea made a huge change in my life. I began to love beachcombing for sea glass and started a sea shell collection.
