Sea Glassing in Cape Breton

We just spent a fabulous weekend in Cape Breton, sea glassing, snorkeling, and getting fattened up by my mother's cooking. Its as good as life gets. And then some. We found some truly beautiful pieces of glass, including the one above, but what takes the cake are the thousands of pieces my parents have gathered (and sorted!) since the ice melted off the beaches a few short months ago. Stunning pieces of glass and pottery that are screaming to be made into necklaces, earrings and art. They'll have to scream a bit longer as I have to work at my Other Life Job tomorrow, and then work on some custom orders, but should have some new pieces ready for my etsy shop by the end of the week.

Neil's Harbour beach, where I grew up. My father was a lobster fisherman and once was caretaker for the lighthouse.

Shyloh, patiently waiting for someone to throw her stick, wondering why her people spend so much time poking around on the beach.


  1. Found your blog by accident.....but it was serendipity, because I have been longing to make a trip to Cape Breton.
    Love your designs.

  2. Thanks Hilary, it was a great trip and I wish I was there still :)
