All of my sea glass gems were picked up on beaches, bays or where tidal rivers flow into larger bodies of salt water along the East Coast. I have never paid for my sea glass nor has it been tumbled or altered with the exception of drilling; my sea glass is pure and untouched. I am a juried professional member of the International Sea Glass Association (ISGA).
I have collected sea glass for over 25 years and build most vacations around beach areas where I can collect this special glass. I also design and create hand enameled findings to complement my pure frosted sea glass. My family supports my collecting with good humor! During the last 18 years I've been creating sea glass jewelry and window mosaics. I enjoy creating sterling silver bezels using soldering techniques.
My handcrafted sea glass creations are available at RefunkIt in Ashland, VA, the Lakeside Farmers Market in Henrico, VA, Lemon Tree Gallery and Studio in Cape Charles, VA, and The Cultural Arts Center in Glen Allen, VA. This website features samples of my work.
