I have a bit of a breathing space this weekend so I am going to catch up on blog posts. One of the things that came up during the week was that I promised Nathalie some photos of my seaglass necklace. In this blog post about sand, I wrote that I wrote I used to collect seaglass and have a beautiful necklace made of pink seaglass shaped into butterflies.
Here it is! It was made by an old man who collects seaglass from the beautiful beaches in South Africa where I am from, and makes them into jewellery. He does not use expensive tools or materials but his work is absolutely beautiful.
He keeps beautiful smooth texture and shapes of seaglass by only working very minimally on it to add some detailing.
As an aside, seaglass comes from salt water and beach glass comes from fresh water.
