Hand Bezels with beachglass and pottery; 18”L
"I gather beach glass from the shores of New England. I am drawn by the unique shapes and soothing colors of the glass that has been tossed and tumbled along the rocky coast for many years. I select pieces of beach and complementary glass and set them into intricate and creative designed necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings and other fine jewelry. The glass is hand bezel-set in sterling silver or gold, accompanied by pearls and semi-precious stones. On occasion I include beautiful pieces of beach pottery into my designs."
