Hi Everyone,
I’m creating a page with photos and posts from readers. If you have jewelry or crafts you want to display (I’ll use your name of course if you give me permission), please send them along.

If you know of some great resources to buy wire, or findings or if you have sea glass you can’t use and want to sell, this is a place you can do it.

My email is seaglassarts@gmail.com and you can also leave a link!

There’s a Sea Glass Lovers Page and I’ll add links and resources too.

If you want to check out the NSGA site, here’s the link. The info. for last year’s festival is still up though so don’t get confused.

Etsy is the amazon.com site for crafts. If you want to see what other people are doing with sea glass check out these links below. Turns out the ones I love the most are by the same few set of artists. These are amazing pieces of art work and incredible pieces of sea glass. The prices are pretty astronomical too but it’s still fun to view.

It’s endless what can be done with sea glass. It looks like these artists are as good at crafting metals and making design as they are at setting pieces of sea glass.

Bookmarks

I’ve been bookmark and ornament happy this holiday season. Here are samples of the bookmarks I’ve made. I have to say these are a fun and practical gift to make and to give. They are pleasing to the eye, look good even if the sea glass is a funky shape as it isn’t worn on the neck but adorned on a book.

Also, if you want to try wire wrapping and don’t want to put a lot of pressure on yourself these are forgiving. They don’t require a lot of wire, look good in gold-coated wire or the recycled sterling silver and some “perfectly imperfect” pieces of sea glass can be used.

Anyhow, I’ll be getting back to regular blogging in 2010. My personal life took front and center for a good while in 2009. But, regular postings, sharing on the ways I work with wire and what I learn from the sea glass hunting will be on the blog.

Enjoy the winter, the start of the days not getting darker but lighter, and the holidays.

These are a huge hit with reader, book club members and people giving gifts to teachers. They were popular at the craft fair. And, people are being so careful with money this year. I am sure it helps that they are a low cost item. Here are some pictures:
