Sea Glass Jewelry

My many years of collecting have lead me to actually finding a use for these gems. I decided to create jewelry using the glass and sterling silver. Everything was self taught. I started with the simple art of wire wrapping, then moved on to drilling and now I am in the beginning stages
of soldering. About 13 years ago I began to sell my pieces through private sale - word of mouth. Since then, I have a web site, I have been in a local Salem gallery and I have sold wholesale to a local shop, Port Maia. I am constantly thinking of new and exciting designs. I have started a home goods line - except for the wine charms I have been making for years. I recetly found a fantastic site - Etsy - to set up shop and sell my items online. Things are really starting to take off now! Hopefully someday I will be able to actually have a "professional" design a site for me... but this will do until then.
