Gunmetal Wire Wrap Sea Glass

Wow! I just realized how long it has been since I blogged last

I’ve been making a lot of progress building for the shop for this upcoming season.  I’m on the road, yes we are living out of our RV these days and have been since November 7th about. The work space is rather small and I’m feeling like I should have more than the 86% of the dash but then I really shouldn’t be so bossy after all I do need a driver to get me around.

Did I ever tell you how much I like the gunmetal wire?

IT is amazing, colour and results are amazing as well

This is a prototype I made this week

I added pearls, brown and white sea glass and a few beads

I like to mix wire and sea glass

I think the gunmetal wire looks amazing on the brown sea glass, don’t you?

The darker pearls really add to this piece. I am hoping to wear it to my daughter’s wedding this coming August, with a tan/coffee coloured dress

In Eastport Maine I found these bricks that have been washed by the waves and I like the look they have with the silver wire so I made a necklace and earrings to match, do you like them?  It is amazing what the sea gives back to you

Well our adventure is almost at an end. Our grand-son Logan is going to be here in 10 days and it is time we left Orlando and headed back North to see Jennifer and scrapbook an album of Logan.  I hope to return and show you a few scrapbooked pages before heading home to Prince Edward Island.

Sea Glass Earrings

green seaglassEven though it is Winter here in Prince Edward Island and we have snow on the ground it is also a great time to go beachcombing and find sea glass.  Over the past two days we have ventured out and found what I would say are some good quality pieces.  
green beachglass earringsI have been in the studio drilling glass for earrings and I broke my first piece of sea glass.  No big deal, it wasn’t blue or red but it was a perfect match for a pair of earrings I had picked them out for.  knotted wire seaglass earringsMatching sea glass for earrings is very time consuming and takes a lot of patients and time, something I have in the Winter months as our little shop doesn’t see too much business. You are not only matching size but colour and shape.  Seeing it is Christmas I put out the open sign for two days last week and had a few drop ins from Islanders who have family home from away. I have everything I need scattered all around me when I work and I wonder if it looks messy to people who drop by or if it looks like I was working.    

white sea glass earringsLast night I finished up these earrings. Most of them are all seaglass that I drilled with the exception of one pair of bead earrings.  The earrings are hung onto photos of PEI. These photos are in the studio and are used in “My Island Experience” when travellers stop by to scrapbook. hammered wire beaded earringsI wire wrap and I have found I also like to hammer wire so this is my first pair of earrings that I made by flattening out the wire and then punching a whole in one end for the earring hook.  If you notice white fuzz on the earrings when you click on the picture to enlarge it, don’t worry this comes off, I like to have a 12 x 12 swatch of alpaca on my work surface so things don’t roll away when I’m working.  


I’ll be bagging these up today and getting them ready to price. Thank you for stopping by my blog on sea glass earrings I hope you drop by again.
