Happy Monday my friends. It really is an exciting day for me as my new website is now live …. I’m doing a happy dance 😊.
You don’t even need to learn a new web address as I’ve kept the same one. So please if you get a chance have a wee look and let me know what you think. I’m so relieved I’ve finally gotten it finished as it was to be released end of May but due to this years unexpected turn I didn’t manage it..until now!
Not only am I excited about releasing the new website but also my new collection – sea glass collection! As you all already know I’m a big seaside fan, it is my happy place and last year I started collecting sea glass with my girls. It’s something we do now with every visit. The more and more we collected the more I started visualising some of them in jewellery settings, like my drive to the beach necklace. I have quite a few more I would like to make into jewellery and now that the website is done all I can say is watch this space, more pieces will follow!
Here is a few facts about sea glass, in case you are curious…..
What is it?
Sea glass is recycled glass that is manmade and has found its way into the ocean. This glass over time has been physically and chemically weathered by the salt water. The results is frosted glass with smooth round, edges. It can take a long time in the ocean for sea glass to look like this, maybe twenty plus years.
Where do you find sea glass?
Sea glass is found washed up on the beach. I collect sea glass from the North Atlantic way and the Irish sea.
What colours of sea glass do you find?
Colour of sea glass is determined by its original source. Most of the pieces of glass in our oceans comes from bottles but you can also find glass from glasses, windows, headlights etc.
The most common colours are green, brown, white and clear. Some of the rarest colours are pink, teal, black.
As plastic was discovered the amount of glass in our oceans is decreasing and is thought that it will be harder to find in the future.
Well that’s all for today folks, If you have enjoyed todays blog and would like to be the first to find out about new offers and what’s coming up in the future then please do sign up for my newsletter.
