Sea glass comes from glass objects that have somehow found their way into the ocean, here they are tossed and tumbled amongst the water and sand for years, sometimes decades. The objects are smashed into pieces and then caressed until the surface is worn into a beautiful soft patina, smooth to touch and with an almost organic feel.
I find these pieces washed up onto the beach like little jewels, just waiting for me to collect. It can take me weeks sometimes months to find enough beautiful pieces to make a lamp, and finding jewellery quality sea glass is not common.
For every one hundred pieces I find, maybe one or two will end up been a piece of jewellery. They are priced in accordance of how rare the colour is, and how perfect the shape and patina.

Sea glass ambiance lamp
"What was that!"
This lamp has many unusual pieces, bottle bottoms and the rim of the neck. One piece with a perfect letter R on it, all the pieces are smooth and interesting, it will definitely add interest to any room as you try and figure out it's history.

I have a quite few pieces of jewellery in the gallery that I haven't photographed, I will try and get some more photos. The really beautiful pieces sell quickly and are hard to part with.

Tiffany Style candle holder sold
I have sold many pieces of art made with sea glass and as no two pieces of sea glass are ever the same once something is sold I can not replicate the pieces. I can and do make similar things, as in the same shape and colour, but find that I usually only make similar things two or three times, then I am ready to move on to new designs.
Here are a few of my sea glass lamps that have been sold.
