Unique handmade Sea Glass Jewellery
Sea glass, also known as mermaid tears or sea jewels, is glass found on the beaches and shores of the sea, some rivers, lochs and lakes. The glass which has found it’s way into the sea, accidentally or through littering, is naturally broken up and tumbled by the sea and sand, creating the smooth, frosted appearance and textures, which can be seen on my jewellery.
All my pieces of Scottish Sea Glass jewellery and products, use genuine and naturally tumbled sea glass which I have found on the beaches of Scotland, from Edinburgh to the Shetland Isles.
The Scottish sea glass is naturally tumbled by the sea, then myself and family collect it off the sea shore, we bring it home to my workshop where it is soaked and cleaned.
Much care and attention is then taken in the design process, where I select the right pieces of Sea Glass taking into consideration colour, shape, size and textures of each piece.
As no two pieces of sea glass found are ever the same, consequently no two pieces of my work are ever the same. Therefore, when you purchase a piece of Scottish Sea Glass jewellery, you can be sure you are wearing something unique and individual.
From individual pieces, to commissioned work using a customers own sea glass they have found, to larger corporate gift orders, I absolutely love every stage of making my Scottish Sea Glass jewellery and other products. I hope you enjoy my website and any pieces you order, as much as I enjoy making them.
