About Seaside Rocks

Seaside Rocks

Handmade Wild Jewellery from the UK coastline. Absolutely Made With Love!

I've always loved glass.
In fact, when I was 4, I helped myself to a handful of colourful glass beads from the craft shelf at school; they were cool, and bright, and noisy in that smooth glassy way. I stole them and adored them on the sly for a day or two before I was caught and brought to justice by reading Peter and Jane books out loud to the headmistress during playtime (for a week).
About 6 years ago (40. Yes, 40 years later), I remembered that seaglass existed, and how lovely and mysterious and beautiful it is, once you start thinking about it.

What was it? Who once had it whatever it was? What's the story here? How many decades on that seabed, rolling and tumbling along all alone?

After a bit of a Google , I saw the lovely amazing things that can be made with it. Enthused, I boldly set about learning how to work with it, thinking up things to make with it, to be able to wear it, to honour it..this is how my seaglass adventure (obsession) started.

In Sussex where I'm based, you may sometimes find seaglass on the shore. Then there's Cornwall, lots of lovely juicy finds there. However, I can report that recent trips haven't been as fruitful as usual.
One of the most famous places in the uk for seaglass is Seaham in Durham, NE England, due to the old Victorian glassworks. Unused glass was thrown out to sea at the end of the day, & still it washes up to this day. My long-suffering gorgeous guy and I have spent many wet & cold hours seeking out the multi-coloured pieces: as well as the little, perfectly frosted nuggets of seaglass. The nuggets appear in a fair amount of my designs.

I just love those pebbles too: so tactile & warm, with go-with-everything neutral, earthy hues. I love working with these guys, very easygoing and versatile.

Plastic.The amount of plastic in our eco-systems is alarming. I always take home as much as I can when I visit a beach, like bags of the stuff. I recycle what I can. As for the beach plastic jewellery...

100% OF THE PURCHASE OF THE PLASTIC JEWELLERY WILL BE DONATED TO THE MARINE CONSERVATION SOCIETY. WWW.MCSUK.ORG. to support the work they do in protecting our oceans and wildlife.

I work from a small dining table at home in my spare time, which means everyone eats on their laps. Noone complains about the drilling noises either.

My designs seem to be...wherever they take me. They just sort of appear and I'll get on a roll and make lots of them; the same but different, so no two pieces are the same..

if you need anything custom made, I am happy to accommodate, supplies permitting. If you have any bits you've brought home from a beach walk & would like something made from them, then I'd love to do that too. Just get in touch!

And yes, I have a cat, who likes to help by rolling about on any driftwood that's brought home. I'm literally his human slave.

    Just received these precious little sea stones and they are just fabulous! I just want to hold them and look at them. But the minute I opened the package I knew they were to be a gift for a very very dear friend. Oh my what fun she will have with them. Treasures indeed.
    Thank you for your careful packaging and swift response. I'll shop here again!
