As I mentioned in my last post, we recently returned from a holiday in Fife, Scotland. We had a great week, and one of the highlights for me was the opportunity to do a bit (well, quite a lot, if I’m honest) of beachcombing.
I found one particular beach that was awash with sea glass and sea pottery, and the main photograph shows just a few of my best ceramic finds. I love the way that time in the ocean rubs and softens the glazes and patterns.
I’m not sure what I’ll do with these yet. One of two are suitable for mounting in silver and turning into pendants, but I need to find a way of displaying the rest. I also picked up a lot of sea glass, which I have used to fill a glass vase.
I need to have a good sort through this stash, and see what I can use to make jewellery. Many of the bits are lovely, irregular shapes, obviously from the necks or bottom of bottles, which sadly means I can’t use them. They look pretty good on our window sill though.
