Seaglass or beachglass



I love Seaglass it is glass that has found its way to the ocean and is broken and those pieces spend years and years tumbling around being beaten and treated roughly.I have been creating Jewelry with these bits of glass for over 25 years, I use all kinds of wire , am self taught but I love the look ...and the feel of the glass. I try to keep my work as pure and simple as the glass. Its amazing what the ocean and sand does to broken glass, So I can take it and create a treasure for me or someone to enjoy.

Low and behold one day it lands on the beach and someone finds it..its beautiful this rough sea trash has found its way to smooth, glorious beauty. Something someone wants to treasure and wear in jewelry, or just keep in a bowl where they go to have a quiet moment and remember that spiritual walk on the beach where we literally can be reborn.

I feel seaglass represents our lives...many of us walk though life in a harsh, hard way and we wonder what we did to get there....but one day we all know we will wake up one morning and find out we have all the rough spots smoothed away and we are beautiful and treasured by those around us.

Enjoy your days for you are always a treasure.

Beautiful! To become "Real" takes a lifetime. I love the story Velveteen Rabbit.

Do you sell to shops there? I'm wondering if I bought a few of your designs last year at the Sanderling. I have cobalt blue collection.

Why I create (my new name Lorri Lee Glennon)

Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
