Holy Sea Glass!

>> Wednesday, April 7, 2010

On a morning that began with sun and the promise of warmth, a hunter was beckoned to the sea. Once she arrived, Mother Nature decided if this hunter was going to be successful, she would be put to a test. The hunter braved the cold rain and nasty wind that rolled in under a sky of grey clouds and was rewarded for her efforts...

Hello
Found you through Loui (Mountain Mermaid)and it was so nice to find a fellow Rhode Islander. We lived 52 years in RI, mostly Providence, a little in Warwich and at the last 17 years in East Greenwich. We moved to Florida 6 years ago and I'm still homesick. When I read your interview with Kat I was flooded with memories of weekends at Scarborough Beach. In high school we had our own spot on the beach and all of us met there every weekend. What fun. Here we've been lucky enough to find a home on the water, so it helps with the missing of RI's coastline.

I absolutely love your jewelry. It is really beautiful and so reminiscent of the beach, ocean. I've become a fan and will definitely be a customer.

Nice to make your acquaintance.

Very beautiful! I've been collecting here in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for the past two years and I love it!

Wow! You hit the jackpot. Can't wait to see what you make with it. Great colors too!

Hi glassidentities, yes one morning, about 2 hours worth. I tend to find a lot this time of year, but I think I was particularly lucky this day because it was rainy and nasty out and I was literally the only person out there, so it just sat waiting patiently for me to find it.

Hi Claire, so nice to meet you too! Funny, I meet more RI'ers online- it really is a small world. Thank you for your kind compliments, I love what I do and am so fortunate to live here! (Although I really love the west coast of FL too and hope to move there some day!)

mypatrice- it is addictive, isn't it?! I suppose that explains me hunting in the freezing rain with no rain gear on for two hours, lol!

Accessorylady, thanks for visiting. Yes, I think this was the jackpot- I couldn't believe how much coke bottle green and aqua was showing up!

Ahhhhh! Love the photos of it all layed out. I've done the same and my dh thinks I'm crazy. I just showed him your post and he said "what does she do with it"? I guess yours isn't sitting in jars is it, like mine. lol
Fabulous finds!

Gretchen, tell your husband my response is "What DOESN'T she do with it?!"

The canning jars filled with daffodils in the photo are now filled 3/4 with sea glass and have candles in them, I have jars, bowls, bins and pails full of it, I mosaic windows and birdbaths with it, I plan to do a bathroom backsplash with it, I make jewelry with it,

I could go on and on and on and on and.... :)
