Sea glass has an amazing ability to transport

you...from its mysterious beginnings...along its

journey from trash to beautiful gem...to the beach

where the glass was found. No two pieces are the

same. Each piece has its own unique story, which

makes my jewelry as one of a kind as the wearer.

It takes decades for a bottle carelessly tossed into the ocean, marbles lost overboard or a glass insulator

washed away in a hurricane to tumble their way to shore as sea glass.

 

I taught myself how to make jewelry after collecting pounds of sea glass. It was too beautiful to just sit in my

house in a display jar. I love sharing the bounty of my wanderlust.

 

I use metal, leather and natural fibers in my jewelry.  I also incorporate other items found on the beach

into my pieces…coral, metal, driftwood, tile, wire, etc.  Everything I use has been washed ashore; nothing

has been removed from the sea. 

 

I find all the sea glass used in vidrio de mar's jewelry on a secluded, rocky beach in Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
