Beach Finds

I'm loving beach pottery at the moment.


As each piece is unique, every one holds different design possibilities. I was particularly pleased with this pair (am I allowed to say that?!), so much so, I've kept them for myself and I'm wearing them right now!  Of course, you can go out and try to find your own beach pottery if you're by the coast, but if you're not, there are some lovely selections that are available on Etsy, like this bundle from Tideline Designs.


And here's another pretty selection, from Borealis Sea Glass.


I hope this post might have enticed you to try out some beach pottery in your designs.

Farewell for now, Claire
(something to do with your hands)

  4. Beautiful earrings Claire! I love finding stuff on the beach! We found a couple of very tiny pieces last year when visiting California- but nothing like these. But still very fun to collect! Knowing it's been tumbling around in the wild of the ocean for so long... it's amazing stuff!

  7. I have such a hard time with non-matching earrings. This pair is beautiful though. I love the colors and textures.

  9. I've bought these from Tideline Designs in the past. They're quite expensive though, don't you think?

    1. When you buy it, you do tend to pay out - mind you, it's a big bundle and it's all been drilled...

  10. I knew of beach glass, but had never heard of beach pottery, although it stands to reason that it would exist. Thanks for sharing!
