Recently I've become fascinated by the colourful objects I find on my beach walks. I stroll along, occasionally stopping to winkle out small smooth stones from the sand, especially excited if I spy the green gleam of sea glass, which I swoop on as if it was an emerald.
I love the idea of up-cycling these naturally available objects, so have begun experiments to feature them in jewelry. I began with this green hand crocheted ring to test methods of holding the 'gem' in place. It worked, but I've ideas that should improve it.
