Announcement   As long as I can remember, I’ve always loved the creative process. I’m a calligrapher, and have sold my work at art fairs and shops across the country. I’m also a musician (singer/ songwriter) with one CD of original music under my belt and another on the way soon. My most recent creative venture is turning bits of discarded glass that have been sculpted by water, sand and rock into wearable art.

It all started on a beach in Puerto Rico, walking the beach, picking up shells like typical tourists. Mixed in with the usual conches and snail shells were bits of brightly colored stones, or so I thought at the time. Back in the hotel room I emptied the collection containers. Upon closer inspection, I realized these were pieces of glass that had been smoothed and frosted by surf and sand.

Each piece of my sea glass jewelry is crafted from authentic sea glass gathered on the shores of Puerto Rico. No two pieces are alike, due to the nature of the glass. Each piece is a one of a kind piece of wearable art, made especially for you.

About

Jewelry and Other Creations Made of Sea Glass

It all started on a beach in Puerto Rico, walking the beach, picking up shells like typical tourists. Mixed in with the usual conches and snail shells were bits of brightly colored stones, or so I thought at the time. Back in the hotel room I emptied the collection containers. Upon closer inspection, I realized these were pieces of glass that had been smoothed and frosted by surf and sand.

Intrigued by these little gems, I did some research, and discovered that they were pieces of old bottles and jars that had been tossed, scoured, and polished for decades by waves and sand into beautiful, colorful gems. They begged to be made into something lovely, so I began experimenting, wrapping them with sterling silver wire and adorning them with beads.

Since that first trip, we have returned each winter. We love Puerto Rico so much that we bought a small piece of land in the mountains of the southwestern part of the island and built a vacation house there (see our web site at www.escapetopr.com). We travel to the island at least twice a year, and on each trip, I make time to return to my favorite beaches to collect the glass I use to make the pieces you see here. All of my jewelry is made with genuine surf tumbled sea glass from the salt waters of the Atlantic and Caribbean.

My Etsy shop is named Silver Beach Sea Glass after my favorite beach on the island of Vieques, off the eastern shore of Puerto Rico. I would love to design a piece especially for you!
