Finding a matching pair of earrings can be a challenge

I weaved the back to grasp the seaglass tightly

Then I noticed this piece I had listed on Etsy but it looked sort of blue so I re-took the pictures so the image was white, proper light means everything.

Spoiler:

Today we woke to 15cm of snow, I’m not ready for this.

I talk to dad each Friday on Skype the home sets it up and he is getting very tired.

Guy and I have started jig saw puzzles again and are frustrating over a 2000 piece.

We are in the process of replacing 5 windows in the house.

The B&B bathroom gets a facelift Dec 15 & 16.

We have made 3 trips to Ottawa and the last one we returned with Guy’s dad’s car as he has given into the fact he will never walk again after the accident.

On November 29th I put up our Christmas Tree. Our first tree with just blue and silver ornaments and nothing homemade.  I sent all the popcorn, popsicle stick and macaroni ornaments to a better place/ compost.

The Tearoom and B&B have been closed for a month now and I’m getting in the habit of  sleeping in.

I’m trying to get back into a blogging routine but finding it challenging so I’ve decided to not blog quality but quantity, just pictures and very little words and see how that works for me.  done

Seaglass and Designs

My New

 

These days so many lovelies on Prince Edward Island are wire wrapping Seaglasss.  I decided to design a new look, I like to think it is jewellery from the age and era of the Titanic but my French Gardener tells me it is Steampunk Jewellery with all the embellishments.  Whatever it is called I made a few new pieces this past week to share with you and need your opinion on them.  Like most new adventures, we are critical of ourselves so be honest and let me know what age group this might be aimed too? Do you think this might be a seller? Should I just stick to what I know and the usual wirewrapping I’ve done?

 

Drum Roll………

“Miss dragonfly”  has just landed on a smooth landing pad picked from the shores of Prince Edward Island. Well rounded and smooth this teal piece of seaglass was perfect for her little feet to drop down onto.

Next….

diet_necklace

 This is dear to my heart and I caller her “Miss Diet”.  If you have a look you can see Miss Diet knows the key to success, and it  is  time and she has nicely put it onto her plate.

And…….

reflections

 

“Miss Reflections” who could forget this little dear who flutters around us daily reminding us of how short the tree of life really is for her.  The trunk of the tree of life carries her offspring who have not yet grown up to learn the colours of life yet,  but they are close by and eager. For if they earn those colours her job is done and passed on.

Lastly……..

Bringing up the tail end is “Miss Wantabee”

“Miss Wantabee” is a flighty dragonfly who is very compassionate about her work and friends, she is compelled to be a follower not a leader. She enjoys the simple life of colours and flowers and couldn’t care about their names just that they surround her.  She has made her nest in the tree of life and won’t fly too far from it.

 

The pictures you see are real, they are my new designs, the names and people they have been created from are protected for personal reasons. These necklaces along with other Seaglass can be purchased in the Prince Edward Island gift shop called “Island Made” located at 545 Malpeque Rd, Charlottetown.

 

Thank you, Cindy

 

 

The Sea Glass Lady

Oh its true, I do, I love sea glass.  I love its colours, I love the hunt, I love the mystery of where it might have come from, I love journey it traveled to get to me, and I love transforming it into what it can be, I love working and wire wrapping it and I love that Sea Glass symbolizes me.

I also love to get mail, especially when it is addressed to

“The Sea Glass Lady”

So what is sea glass? Well it is broken pieces of glass that has been washed over time by mother nature up onto the shores. Don’t be fooled because not any old piece of broken glass can be given the title “sea glass.”  It has to be over 30 years old rolling back and forth with the waves over salt, sand, and stone tumbling in the ocean for years making it smooth on all sides, until it is a nugget size just right for Jewel-quality.

Textures will tell sometimes how old, or rare a piece of sea glass really is

 

I ask the same question each time I reach on the beach for the sea glass nugget while beachcombing; What was your history…Come on tell me your story.  Were you a bottle, a vase, a dish, or a jar that held penny candy in a 5 & dime?  Who’s your owner? How far did you travel? How old are you? Or how did you end up on my little Island, Prince Edward Island?  How did you get to the ocean in the first place?  

Cobalt blue sea glass identifies with a Noxzema jar, Milk of Magnesia, and Vick’s Vap-o-Rub bottles from early to mid 1900′s

 

Oh so many questions and often no answers but sometimes Sea Glass can be identified by the markings, its colour, and sometimes shape.  I’ll have to settle with not having the full complete story on each piece of sea glass and leave some of the mystery to continue the story.
