There is something so magical about the ocean. How anything so huge and powerful can also be calming and soothing is a mystery to me. Whenever I am near the sea I find it almost impossible to tear myself away. I love that feeling of being a part of something so much bigger than yourself, and the beauty of nature as the water crashes into the shoreline.
It has been a few years since I have been able to sit ocean-side, and lately I am definitely feeling like I need to feel some salt water in my hair! But, since that is not in the cards at the moment, I have been feasting my eyes on jewelry that has been touched by the sand and surf. I especially love the light and lovely pieces by Victoria BC’s Swept From The Sea Designs.
I love the soft, tumbled look of the sea glass. It has an earthy feel that sets it apart from straight coloured glass (of which I am also a HUGE fan, as many of you know by now).
Would a little bit of sea glass be the perfect finishing touch to a crafty project you have in mind? Swept From The Sea Designs has groups of glass pieces for sale in different colours, and even some sea glass buttons that could be just the ticket.
Indulge your inner mermaid with a visit to the Etsy shop, and don’t miss the Winter White sale section! I am off to feast my eyes on a little piece of the west coast… Enjoy!
