Seahorses and Sea Glass


 Earrings from Sea Glass Designs




The handbag above sold to a lovely customer living in Quebec, Canada.
The sea is a big inspiration for my work. See my post below with the beautiful photos of Fire Island, NY. My parents loved the sea and would often take my brother and I to Jones Beach Island off the southern coast of Long Island, NY. I would spend the day collecting seashells, building sand castles and day dreaming. 
Later on as an adult I would continue to take trips to the sea with my parents. My father would go fishing while my mother and I would sit by the seashore painting the landscape with our watercolors. 
A while back I did a search on Etsy.com to find items with an ocean theme. I came across a shop called Sea Glass Designs. They make jewelry and art from natural sea glass, pottery and china shards gathered from Novia Scotia beaches. Absolutely beautiful work! You must check it out.  I bought a fantastic pair of  earrings made from white seaglass with stamped silver plated seahorses. They are posted above. I love them!  The sellers were so nice as well!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
