About

Beach Glass Designs & Much More!

I have always loved the beach and beachcombing. There is nothing like the feel of being by the water. On many family vacations, my dad would plan vacations to Florida. I fell in love with the sea and tropical breeze We would look for shells, but I had never heard of beach or sea glass at the time.

For several years, my husband and I have been collecting beach glass along Lake Erie.. It was actually his idea. He is my partner in beach combing, or the "hunt" Sometimes we walk the beach for hours. I don't know which is more fun, walking the beach, finding the treasure, or designing something from it. Anyways, after the collection began overflowing its many containers, my husband said why don't you "do something with it.

And so I began making jewelry, bookmarks, and "more" I am self taught, and still learning, at wire wrapping, so my designs are unique. Mostly, I freestyle wire, using tools only for the bail, and for tightening up the setting

One man's junk is another man's treasure. So the saying goes. Part of the allure of beach glass is that at one time it was a bottle, a pretty plate, etc, and was tossed away into our oceans and lakes. Through decades it is surf tumbled and becomes beach glass (sea glass if ocean found. All my beach glass is genuine, surf tumbled beach glass, found by me and my husband along the shores of Lake Erie. At times I will buy rare glass from trusted sellers, and will note where glass originated from.


I would be happy to work with you on a custom order.

I hope you love your treasure as much as when I designed it.

Family friendly, pet friendly, smoke free home.
