Tell us about your business.

From start to finish I make jewelry that is truly handmade. After finding authentic sea glass on the beach I started Out Of the blue Sea Glass Jewelry. Sea glass looks to have emerged from antiquity. It looks to be a product of nature yet comes from man made glass. I often find myself wondering what kind of jewelry ancient people that lived by the sea would have made with sea glass. This inquiry serves as inspiration and I strive to make jewelry that not only has the potential to become an heirloom but looks to be timeless. Each ear wire and pendant bale is lovingly shaped and finished by hand in our studio. Each bracelet and necklace is hand pieced together. Our jewelry is made from scratch. Using age-old techniques and simple hand tools I shape and form precious metal wire into jewelry. Our jewelry can not be mass produced because we do not use commercially produced pre-fabricated components.

What makes your business stand out?

What makes my business special is that I only use authentic beach found sea glass. With few exceptions my jewelry is truly handmade from start to finish.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Follow your heart and listen to your extinct! Make it a love affair!
