I know ah! more on Sea Glass.  

We are planning our next road trip and this time it is to New Brunswick to do a little beachcombing for seaglass.  

First I’d like to share. Yesterday a sea glass lover stopped by the Scrap’n Wrap gift shop and just walked up to this piece and said, “it’s mine!” So this one is sold and was the first of many I made.

Remember back a few weeks ago I started making this steampunk looking jewellery?  I started to make it because I found so many are wire wrapping seaglass these days and I needed to put a twist on my wire wrapping, sort of give it a new look, kind of like the same old dress but with new shoes and purse idea, right.  I truly like the new look and hope it takes off and others enjoy it also.

I also started to double wrap, meaning I’ll use two pieces in the same wrap and one is free hanging off the other.

I love to bartar also, so yesterday I got an email from a fella who would like me to teach him to wire wrap.  He is in New Brunswick and has done some beachcombing there.  We don’t have a lot of time on this next road trip we are about to go on and so we need a lead on a couple of places to go have a look.  So I offered to meet him at a coffee shop and teach him how to wire wrap seaglass if he gave me a NB map to a couple of beaches. Then I sent him the link to my blog, sort of get him thinking about it a little.  Anyway I hope he takes me up on my offer and we make the trip over to New Brunswick soon.


UPDATE: 3 days later and I got an email back from Mr. New Brunswick Beachcomber, it reads as follows, “I think my wife would kill me if I told you were we go to the beach in search of seaglass.”  However he would be interested in me showing him how to wire wrap seaglass. 

Me: “Mike next time you are on the Island stop in and I’ll teach you how to wire wrap seaglass.”

Happy wire wrapping,
