It is a pleasant land, although the closets are getting a little crowded. But I've been playing around with some stuff today that I wanted to share.
I love beach glass. Have you heard of the San Juan Islands? On one of the islands, Orcas Island, some peoples' driveways have sea glass instead of gravel. It is really enchanting. I was hoping when we moved to the coast that there would be plenty of sea glass to collect--I was thinking we could maybe even replace some graveled areas surrounding our house with the sea glass we collected.
Long story short--this apparently is not a good beach glass area. I have a jar where I've been collecting it, and after all this time I have maybe eight pieces. I was hoping to do some seaglass necklaces, but I haven't had a lot of success finding the right size piece--two are big chunks of beer bottles, so they're kind of brown and clunky, and not what I was envisioning.
To the rescue, of course, comes Amazon--and I bought a little bag of sea glass and some wire. And here are my first attempts:*
And a few more beach rocks, hopefully to be hidden this week if it stops raining. I hope your weekend is great!
*First attempts, but not including the ten I did that looked too sloppy.
