Rock n' Roll Beach Stones

Many months back I made several attempts at drilling sea stones and lining the hole with a silver rivet. It's a beautiful finished look and I have been collecting sea stones in the hopes that one day I would succeed at this method. It turns out that I was simply missing a step in the process. Some people have rivet machines that work beautifully, but they take the wonderful handwork out of the method and in my view should really be considered "machine made" and not "hand made." But that's just my opinion.

I'll be back to show the process, but in the meantime here is a piece that I created and it's in my ETSY shop! SOLD

About Me

My photo
Scituate, Cohasset, Hingham, Cape Cod, Boston, Massachusetts, United States
I am a jewelry designer and photographer living on New England's East Coast in historic Scituate Harbor, Massachusetts near Boston and Cape Cod. My blog is mostly about my muses and inspirations with sea glass and how that translates into my jewelry designs and photographic expressions. For years I've been combing the beaches for sea glass and have built a substantial collection of rare, antique pieces of frosty sea glass in lovely colors. On days when the weather cooperates I'll be out kayaking around Boston Harbor and Cape Cod to collect beautiful, historic sea glass gems. I love to research the origins of the sea glass pieces and I have stories to share about each unique find.
