This morning I awoke at the crack of dawn. Ok, so it was 6:30. I was on the road in 5 minutes, and driving in the fog toward my Sea Glass Spot.
I was rewarded by being the first one there, and the only one for the duration. The tide was exceptionally low, which I did not anticipate, and extra treasures were revealed. Lots of pottery, china, porcelain, etc. A fellow treasure hunter mentioned today that lots of these pieces probably come from shipwrecks off the coast, and many from the early to mid- 1800s. How exciting, I thought! Photos of my recent finds will be forthcoming!
Later on in the morning, we decided to go on an adventure. Acadia, it was!
Smooth, smooth rocks. Too large to wrap, though!
Great Head, off in the distance. Gorgeous and sort of eery, like something out of The Goonies. We climbed up to the top a short while later.
On top of Great Head. Windy, yes. Ever so windy.
Oh! There was rubble foundation of something at the very top, and I found a unusually green hued shard of thick glass nearby, so I will be doing some investigative work to try to find out what once sat atop the knoll!
A few of my favorite things, in sweet, pastel hues of springtime!
Are you a fan of Sojourn Curiosities jewelry? Do you like the sea?
Do you enjoy BATHING?
If so, you’ll love this gorgeous soap from Heathen’s Hearth! It’s inspired by my work with sea glass, and is a sea green all natural goat’s milk formula in a Sea Breeze scent!
The nest is a symbol of life, rebirth, nurturing, and springtime. Tonight, after days of creative block (I believe due to the piles of sea glass in the middle of my workroom), I began to make a nest. Then, I realized I could add my swirls. I think it’s pretty sweet, and can’t wait to make some more like it!
They are the same, yes?
Many thanks to the dear Julie Persons for the gift of the beads I am integrating into The Collective today!
Last weekend, I checked out a new spot for beachcombing. This waterfront fringes a small city next to my town, with a great maritime history, so I knew there were bound to be some finds. I walked for two hours, and was amply rewarded.
Highlights include milk glass, what I think is vaseline glass with a gorgeous pattern, and a piece of orange glass. These are just highlights, though. I filled both exterior, and both interior netted pockets of my coat, plus both my back pants pockets!
See more images in my Flickr gallery!
In addition to my mainstay, my Etsy shop , I’m trying out a new marketplace. I’ve moved a number of my items over to 1000 Markets! It’s an exciting new venue, and I plan to sometimes list my some of my new creations there, while maintaining my Etsy storefront.
If you keep up with my creations, I hope you’ll visit both!
A custom take on a newly explored avenue… in progress- awaiting wire that fits through the beautiful rubies that will adorn this!
Today was the day to take care of all the little paperwork pieces that have been bugging me for a while.

*Acquired a postal box for the business
*Opened a business checking account with my bank
This afternoon, I will:
*Work on two custom orders
*Make new things for the shop
