How everything Tide Together
As a native of the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I was raised with a passion and respect for the natural beauty of our area that in many ways sustains our way of life.
We started beach-combing a lot as a family when my son was about two. My boyfriend Ryan is an artist and he suggested I start making things with the items we found.
I began researching jewelry techniques and creating pieces for family and friends. I was quite surprised when a local boutique offered to carry my pieces on commission.
This was the serendipitous beginning to my life as a jewelry designer.
Found beach items really straddle the line between organic and upcycled components to work with. They are at once historic, mysterious, and improved by nature.
After extensive research, I have found a jewelry supplier that carries a line of sustainable metals and other components to employ in my creations. Every effort is made to create the most eco-friendly pieces possible.
As I have learned more about making jewelry, I have branched out to give other materials a second chance in life. Old jewelry and clothing have been revamped into new accessories that I hope you enjoy.
I truly appreciate your interest in Tide Together Jewelry and Gifts. I hope you enjoy what I have created and find something that speaks to your style.
Feel free to share my shop information with others. Word of mouth is the most trusted advertising available! :)
Most pieces are created with treasures discovered in second hand venues or while beachcombing. As a predominantly self taught artist; I find my style very reflective of the found pieces I work with - Evolutionary. :)
My #1 love is beach combing and many of my pieces are a result of countless hours scouring beaches with friends and family for what we consider "treasure".
I also like to haunt our local Goodwill and other second hand venues for materials that can be remade into new and unique pieces.
You will also see pieces here that are created with all new materials because I still get seduced by a good supply catalog. :) Whenever possible, I choose supplies that are made with sustainable methods and/or components. Whenever possible, I opt for supplies that were made in the USA.
Please note many items are listed as only one available. When I work with found items - occasionally similar reproductions can be recreated but there will never be an exact match because of the rarity of found components.

Additional policies and FAQs
Because I work with natural, found, and unique materials, most pieces are one-of-a-kind. As such, please note it is not always possible to *exactly* replicate a piece due to natural variations and availability of materials.
Some of my listed items may be customizable in terms of size, clasp style, hook style, etc. Please note there may be an upcharge for some customizations.
