Latest Designs: Sea Foam Sea Glass

This lovely bottle green pendant is the latest addition to my SeaSong collection, which is where I showcase my sea glass and sea pottery designs.

It's a word that doesn't begin to do justice to these weird, graceful, beautiful creatures, and I've decided to go with 'flotilla' instead. … Continue reading news from the workshop: a flotilla of seahorses
