Athenticseaglass goes green

Authentic Seaglass goes green!In an effort to reduce my carbon footprint I now have solar panels on my roof. They not only power my tools during the day but charge my 12 volt batteries. This means at night I can switch to my 12 volt tools.  I also collect rain water in a storage drum that I can then use during the drilling and grinding process .  So you can be sure that the piece of jewellery I design for you has almost zero carbon emissions!

A truly efficient clean and environmentally friendly process.

Thinking of the personal touch  – I was delighted to receive this lovely testimonial from a bride who, with her bridesmaids wore my jewellery at her wedding – what  a beautiful bride, and wonderful photos – thank you so much for sharing them – it means so much and makes all the hard work worthwhile.

Hi Joan,
Apologies for the delay in sending these pictures, we just received them from the photographer last week so I’ve been going through to select a few that you might be able to use.
We had an absolutely beautiful wedding day and everybody loved the jewellery – they were all really impressed that it was made from sea glass from Northumberland and thought it was such a lovely idea.
I had a little difficulty finding a picture with all of my bridesmaids where you could clearly see the necklaces – unfortunately, because most of us are fairly light skinned, pictures taken at a distance you can’t see them really clearly.  However, there are a few close-ups of a few of us, which I think show the necklaces really well.  I hope you like them.

Many thanks again for necklace, it went perfectly with my dress.

Kind regards,


I’m Back

Following my accident I’ve had nearly a year out but now I’m back!! My recuperation has given me time to think of new and unique creations and I’m very eager to get into the studio and show off my new ideas.
