Tonight I worked on a Celtic sea glass bracelet for myself. I love sea glass as it reminds me of family vacations at Geneva on the Lake, Ohio back in the 50's and early 60's. My sister and I loved to walk the beach looking for sea shells and the many different colors of sea glass which washed up on shore.
This sea glass is handmade lampwork which was etched with a special solution and is a very pale blue. I used Tierra Cast culinary grade pewter which has been coated in sterling silver spacer beads, as well as one of their dainty small toggle clasps. Hanging from the celtic focal piece; which I purchased on Etsy, I have hung another piece of sea glass and a small key.
I need to get the lampworker to make me a set in lavender/purple....that would be so striking and beautiful....

- I have recently started some new artistic journeys. A slight branch in the road from my first love which is painting. I am hoping to combine my painting abilities with a bit of mixed media to stretch my creativity and think outside the box. I am also doing quite a bit of jewelry design and love the steampunk assemblage although I also love creating jewelry using handmade glass lampwork. Hopefully my journey and the information/photos on this blog will inspire others to think outside the box. Please check out my other blog and my Etsy site by going to my website. http://www.dianaputnam.com Thanks for stopping by....
