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.
