Santa Cruz Sea Glass Festival - November 2010
Met some amazingly creative people -
Santa Cruz Sea Glass Company put a ton of time and effort into making this year's festival a success. They have an outstanding collection of sea glass from Santa Cruz and Monterey beaches, some of which actually glowed when a light was applied. The biggest crowd was gathered around their booth!
This is just one example of Krista Hammond's art - chunky beautiful tumbled sea glass treasures!
Sea Glass Jewels is a lucky lucky artist, living for half of year in Key West, and the other half collecting sea glass in Greece.
Polly of BluMag Photography had a great idea - she uses her incredible photographic talent to capture photos of sea glass and beach objects on her local Aptos beach. She then uses those images on beautifully made black lacquered jewelry boxes. Unique idea from the shores of Monterey Bay...
The Sea Glass Journal too, I think you will like the articles, pictures and information that can be found here.
"Beach, a book of treasure" (click to read more) was released this past spring and can be found at your local bookseller. A little history, a little beach walking, shells, sea glass... would make the perfect gift for the holidays! Try Liberty Bay Books for availability....
Art of Seaglass makes fabulous, original silver art pieces embedded with brightly colored pieces of tumbled beach glass collected on Southern California beaches.
Small world too, my friend Janet, who owns Potlatch Gallery, knows Aileen also and sells her creations in her gallery.
Had no idea how talented she was until I had the opportunity to see her jewelry in person. All hand crafted and designed by Aileen. Wow, think you will love too!
