Seaglassing & Wire Wrapping

Just a Little Twist

Hello my friends Hello! I’m still here in the background, lately behind a pile of laundry and a sink full of dishes. We love our little Bed and Breakfast the B&B keeps us busy and sometimes we miss a few little things in life that we enjoy, like blogging and our anniversary — ooopps.

I have been working on a few new products in the gift shop that I’d like to share. They are just a little twist from my normal seaglass wirewrapping and I hope you like them. Most of our seaglass I’m imagining comes from shipwrecks that have happened over the last hundred or so years. I love finding old pottery plates that have washed ashore and image they have come to me off pirate ships or perhaps the Titanic.  My brother gave me moms set of old dishes when she passed away and I broke one of the side plates and just can’t throw it away. After a few test runs at a thrift store plate, I’m almost ready to cut a medallion from moms old plate. 

Here are medallions cut from a thrift store plate. 

After smoothing down the edges and attaching wire on the medallions 

I wire wrapped the medallion and set it

The plates are nice so I tried using Seaglass

I attached fairies that I ordered on Ebay

I used different coloured metals and they just blended together

I love this one, it reminds me of Point Pelee

 

I love fairies, don’t you?  

As soon as there is another wee break in our bed and breakfast I plan to make a few more with dragonflies as they are another favourite of mine.

Be sure to have a look on my Scrapandwrap Etsy for our Prince Edward Island Seaglass and Wire Wrapped wee little things.

 

xo, Cindy

    Hi Cindy, Sorry we didn’t get to see you and Guy again before leaving the island (we left a bit early). Just getting back to normal after our granddaughter’s wedding and grandson’s vacation with us. I love what you are doing with the jewelry! They are gorgeous, but then you know I love all your work. Hope you have a great winter and find tons of new pieces in your travels. See you next summer, God willing and the creek don’t rise :) Ask your daughter, it is a southern phrase :) Stay safe and enjoy still being near the beach, I won’t see it again until Spring in South Carolina.
