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:

Shannon's work is beautiful and makes me want to get out on the beach! To make jewelry like this takes time and talent.
Shannon's quality of work on her jewelry is superb. She puts her heart into making beautiful pieces of sea glass jewelry using Ryobi products. Love my earrings that Shannon made!

Thank you for your compliment, Stephanie!
Thank you, Ellen, for your very kind words!
Thank you, Kim, for your generous compliment. I am so pleased that you are happy with your earrings!
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!
Nothing makes me happier than to see the beautiful work artists like Shannon create. As a fellow maker, i am inspired!
Braclet is beautiful!!!! I fell in love with sea glass when I found my first pieces.
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!
Thank you so very much, Boni! Fellow makers, unite! :)
Thank you, Markw! I found my first piece in South Carolina and have also been in love with it since then.
Thank you for the generous compliments, Sulu. I would love to see YOUR collection sometime. I'll bet it's AMAZING! Can't wait to hear about what You create.
