Super fast shipping! Each tendril separately wrapped, all in bubblewrap. My second order-I LOVE these! Each tendril has unique twists in med gauge copper. The colorful stones are lovely and securely enclosed. The tendrils are fine looking but strong. Very pleased!

Super fast shipping. Wrapped carefully and sent in a box. Heavy duty copper, uniquely twisted into fun shapes. Really, really like these, they are such fun. Had purchased for the garden, but thinking of using them inside, they are so pretty.

About

In JOY Gathering, Collecting, Making!

Sticks & Stone ~ Sea Glass & Copper!

I may be part squirrel or raven...something that is prone to collecting! For years I have enjoyed strolls on the beaches of Maine. I never leave without a pocket full of sea glass, stones, and driftwood. I have quite a collection at this point and my obsession with collecting is not about to slow down anytime soon! But, it is the hunt that appeals to me more than the having....So I happily offer my Gatherings to you!

Tendril Story ~~~ No Two Alike Made to Delight

20 + years ago my husband & I built our own house here in Maine. We did almost everything ourselves including installing the electrical wiring. When you make things there is usually waste. I do NOT like waste. So I saved the all the wire scraps. As a matter of fact, I am a saver and collector of many things!

Another thing I like do is growing my own food in my gardens. I like to eat the food I grow and I like to be with nature. When I am with nature I enjoy looking closely at the things around me. One day I noticed the curlicue, twisty tendrils on my pea and cucumber plants. Then I suddenly remembered the wire scraps in my attic! I ran right away to get the wire. I had a big jar of marbles I had acquired at a yard sale so started by bending the wire around vintage marbles. Eureka! The Tendril Ornament was born!!

I have made 100's of Tendrils since that day. I like to get wire scraps but it is harder now that most people recycle copper. (this is a good thing!) I, mostly, use found or thrift shop objects to wrap the wire around. I never make 2 exactly alike. When I make them I am quiet. I try not to think and just bend the wire. It is very peaceful.

I spend my life creating, gardening, mothering a teen (now college man!), being a partner, caring for creatures, reading, wandering, & wondering on 30 nice acres in a house built by he and me in Freedom, Maine.

I HAVE 4 ETSY SHOPS ~ All the work is done by ME, my Self, & I!

    I live near the coast of Maine. One of my favorite things to do is to stroll on the beach collecting Sea Glass & Stones. Nothing like the Ocean for finding peace!
