Our Process

 

I love my customers and strive to be as transparent as possible in all of my practices, below you'll find some common questions we receive via email, messenger, or during art festivals.  If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me! I would love to hear from you!

 

FROM THE SEA TO THE STUDIO

Each piece of sea glass or other surf tumbled treasure is discovered by myself, authenticated sea glass sellers, or my husband on various shores. In fact, we most often snorkel for our treasures! After collection all items are cleaned, then sorted. After sorting I select the pieces I deem most inspiring and get to work.

IN THE STUDIO

Sometimes the sea gem in question inspires me to wire wrap. If I wrap, I use a variety of weaving techniques as I love the way metal looks when woven. Other times I see the sea gem in a bezel setting, which means I'll be spending the day behind a torch and a variety of jewelry files!  I love to work with a variety of metals, but mostly create using silver and copper. Regardless each item is made with love and inspired by the expressive lines and organic shapes we find in nature. I strive to contrast delicate designs with found objects to create something you can treasure.

THE WORKING ARTIST

I love my fine arts business and strive to participate in as many shows as possible.  However, most shows are currently virtual so I am as well.  You can find my work here on my website, on facebook, or instagram.  Feel free to follow me to see what goes on behind the scenes!
