Yes. I'm ba-ack!
A little bit of a hiatus from my blog, but I have lots of things to share with you.
I just got back from a quick trip to Palm Beach and I had an opportunity to add to my collection of sea glass.
I don't know why, but I've always been fascinated with sea glass. I mean, sea glass is really just little bits of TRASH! But after being buffeted by the surf and sand, they almost seem magical to me.
I was raised on the east coast and lived within a few miles of the ocean. I remember going to the beach when I was little - catching snails and minnows. Picking up shells and bright bits of sea glass...
Now I live in the midwest. HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of miles away from the nearest ocean. I regret more and more that I didn't spend more time at the beach when I had the opportunity.
But when I have the chance to walk on a beach, I always look for the little bright glints of light in the sand that might mean that I could find a new piece of sea glass.
So here are some of the pieces I added to my collection:
There are few pieces of bright blue and cobalt glass which will be perfect for rings. Some of the larger pieces might work as pendants. I think I'm going to have to set them this week!
