SEA GLASS & STERLING SILVER BRACELET

I make sterling silver sea glass jewelry. The sea glass that I find on our local beaches is left in its natural state. I use Ryobi to cut, drill, shape, sand, buff, and polish silver sheet, bezel strip, and solder. I then bezel set the sea glass into the silver after torching and soldering all of the silver pieces together. Finally, I do a final buffing and polishing of the silver bracelet after the sea glass has been set. You can see more:

Hi Gabster,

Thank you for your vote! However, the contest is not for this bracelet; it is for a necklace. This is just the project I submitted. But thank you for the kind words.

I am in love with water and the ocean. I think what you find and what you make with it is just beautiful.

Thank you, Janno! I fell in love with the ocean as well a long time ago as a child during a trip with my grandparents. It was destiny that I would return and trade Lake Erie for the Atlantic.

Thank you, Janno. And I am in love with the ocean as well! Fortunately, the Ocean does most of the beautiful work for me; I am essentially building a frame for its art!

Shannon is an inspiring, talented artist and her work with sea glass is brilliant. I enjoy learning about Ryobi tools from her posts and am excited to try them one day with my jars and jars of sea glass collected for 45 years!
