West Coast Sea Glass Jewelry Designing with Inspiration

As serious sea glass collectors and full time jewelry designers our art is about more than just producing a product.  It's about desinging with inspiration, a purpose and a story. Here's how and why we do it.

SURROUNDING OURSELVES WITH BEAUTY

It's a daily choice to surround ourselves with beautiful things.  Why?  Because when there are orders to fill and bills to keep up on, the "creative juices" can easily get squished into the corner in light of the more pressing "responsibities" to running a full-time business.  That's why at West Coast Sea Glass we take the inspirational and designing side of our job quite seriously.  Above: The view from our main studio window.

GETTING OUT AND GETTING CLOSE TO THE SEA:

Regular beach treks and excursions are on our calendar specifically for the purpose of staying close to the ocean and for the purpose of discovering something new and beachy.  At right: A Pacific island beach.

 

 

REMEBERING EACH PIECE HAS A STORY

Though it's getting more elusive to find, we've searched shores around the world to find these rare, colorful pairings at left.  After decades of tumbling at sea each has been on an individual journey and no two are exactly alike.  That's why we go out of our way to catalog each shard in baskets by color, by condition and by which ocean it was found along.  We make this story available to each and every customer that buys a West Coast Sea Glass piece.

CRAFTING WITH CARE

As trained silversmiths, we make sure we quality check each piece and scrutinize for creativity, uniqueness and sturdiness.  We work hard to keep our pioneering spirit in our designs and in the way we run our business.  At right: Lindsay solders a sterling silver ring.

 

OUR CREATIVE MARK:

The ocean's beauty is all around us giving us daily reminders of nature's color and resilliance.  This is reflected often in our work.  At left: A group of deep purple sea stars, southwest Canada.  Below: The sea star is a symbol of regeneration and we stamp it on each custom bezel piece of our jewelry.

 

UNIQUE SEA GLASS JEWELRY

Below: A rich, cobalt blue piece of vintage medicine bottle glass is smoothed by years along a rugged Pacific ocean shore.  It has been beach combed by the artist then finely bezel set into a sterling silver toggle necklace.
