Seaglassing & Wire Wrapping

Sea glass & Red


My home surrounds me with things I enjoy most.  That takes in things I like to: wear, eat, see, smell  and craft. That said you know where my posts are going, well most of them might be going to crafting at my Scrap N wrap blog where I talk about beachcombing, wirewrapping and scrapbooking. Then other posts will come from my Hats’n Hospitalitea blog where I talk about our tea room, tourism, family, fun times and places in Prince Edward Island. So I hope you enjoy the home party that Sandi has created.

HOME = Heart Of My Enviroment #1

Recently home from a two week beachcombing vacation and I have lots of goodies to share.  First and foremost I love red, be it a sweater on a chilly day, wine in a nice glass, a red sky at night, but most of all I love red seaglass. I know you can’t see my pouting but I found but a grain of red sea glass on this last trip to the beach. I know, I know better a grain than a crumb. 

 

 

 

 

However I needed red and so I took red wire and made a weave then pulled it through a drilled hole and made the weave smaller and unique. I had to include sea glass and found this lovely white piece that was a nice size chunk, added some red wire and swarovski crystals and vola, it’s a wrap ready for the gift shop.  I’ve got a blue piece in the making and that is what I’ll share next.

    Hello Cindy,
    Welcome to my HOME party! Your jewelery is very pretty and I love the red sea glass! You know I have never seen red sea glass on the beach and I practically live there in the summertime. I guess the tourists and folks like yourself are picking it all up before I get there. Thank you for linking up for HOME and enjoy your weekend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  2. Cindy, you do the most beautiful work. This one is really unique and I Iike that you added Swarovski crystals to it as well. Have a great weekend. Pam

    I have just come across your site and love it. I have collect small bits of sea glass the last few years but decided this year to find more. I live in Ontario so my glass comes from Lake Ontario. I have found over twenty pounds of sea glass so far since May 2012 and have started making jewellery. I find white browns and greens some dark blue and sea foam even some red . Not sure if I will find much this winter.

      Hi Sharene,
      Thanks for stopping by. Beachcombing can be very addictive and not to mention I have my husband and friends all doing it also. Some day we will visit Lake Ontario as I have a friend Cheryl who lives and hunts that area and she has brought some of her sea glass to Prince Edward Island to show me, amazing stuff. The winter can be slow but use that time to make jewellery, take care

        Hi Cindy, finally found my message I sent you last year. I am still collecting sea glass from Lake Ontario and have started selling it. It has not been a good year as the lake is quite high from all the rain, as the water is high a lot of the beaches I normally collect from are now covered with water, not sure when the water level will go down. Still collected some really nice ones.

        Want to head down east for some more Sea Glass Beaches but just now not sure where.
