*** About the beach treasures***

All are found and collected by me. I wash them with natural collected rainwater( truly) and sort them, by color, size and uses. Everything was found on the beaches and shores of various travel spots. That's me, always looking for the waters' edge. The sea glass is genuine, of course! Our glass is pretty young, hence the angular edges. But it's real, always!

About

Made for Fun...how did it all begin?

Truly, it started on the dining room table, with all the fun stuff I've been collecting. It must have been a rainy day, forced to be indoors. Probably had a great tune playing, in the mood to create and having that little lightbulb shining; a new idea!
I have loads of fabric samples, which of course, I can not toss...so I made my first hands-free for me pouch, adding a stone button and that was the first listing on Etsy three years ago. Sold in two weeks. That was hot!! So I made more and listed more. But nothing happened, beginners luck?
So maybe it was the stone buttons they liked and I have plenty of those I can make. I love collecting those little pebbles on my walks along our shores, or any others we might be vacationing to.
Sure enough, I listed a set of five stone buttons...gone...sold:)
Happy little me made my second sale, with lots of views, I knew I was on to something.
And that's how I run my little shop; what's fun to make? What new idea will pop into my head next. In the meantime, there are lots of stone drillers on Etsy, so I try and keep my shop current with new creations. Of course, this all depends on the weather outside. If it's raining, I'm usually having fun at the dining room table:)
Oh, yes, I have my own collection of rare stones from all over this beautiful country. It seems I plan our vacations, poor family, around rock piles:) like the Grand Canyon, Washington State, places like that; rockhound paradises. To me, a found stone or sea glass piece is special as an emerald or diamond, but without disturbing the Earth. True, I'd love to find an opal, but seeing how those don't lay around, I'll pass:) I marvel at the amount of time, pressure, heat and weather conditions it takes to make an agate, and those do lay about so I'm just as thrilled.
In my opinion, I consider the shell embedded stones really unique, because they actually melted together, during the process of pressure, heat and time, or so I think. As they then crumble off the Earth surface and tumble in the ocean waves, they become smoother and then get expelled from the ocean and if I am fortunate, I get to find them, gleaming in the morning sun.
I keep some stones, I share most; it's more fun to keep looking for more and taking photos. And of course, making some money for the next family trip:)
