Sea Glass


About this design:

A friend at work was away on vacation on the east coast of Canada, and she brought me back a whole bag of sea glass. This was one of the biggest pieces. This is my first attempt at wire wrapping anything that wasn't drilled.

Components:

sea glass 20 gauge non tarnish artistic wire

    Hi,

    Lynn g suggested a PMC book…so, I ordered it, but that wasn’t all!

    But, also found a book called

    “SETTING STONES IN METAL CLAY”

    by Jeannette Landenwitch….. got good reviews on Amazon….if it helps anyone with questions on what stones can take the heat of the firing….kiln. It is a spiral bound book.

    Haven’t received it though.

    Take care…and bead happy!

    And love the sea glass….lovely color to it, and enhanced by the silver. Very nice.

    Karen, this is amazing for your first un-drilled piece. I absolutely love it. Sea glass is a big thing here in Santa Cruz and for the past several years there has been a sea glass festival. Of course I found out about it when it was too late. We have beaches with it on it too. You have a wonderful friend to bring this back for you. Again Karen, you did a spectacular job! Maybe your talent for wrapping will rub off on me. I’m all thumbs when I wrap sea glass and it shows. HA!

    Did your mind get ahead of your fingers Boston Lady. Mine gets that way all the time and also runs away from my tongue so some things I say make no sense either. Then add to it the fact I do not hear well. Well….. you get the idea. You can have some really weird conversations with me.

    Thank you dear chickies, your comments really give me the courage to try new things.
    Carol, You should have seen the first time I tried to wrap it…yikes it looked like a twisted metal ball. Even now I am sure going to have to practice, practice, practice. but it was fun!!!!
