Out Of The Blue Sea Glass Jewelry has a tropical soul! I first started making sea glass jewelry while living in the Caribbean. Many of the tropical flowers that I fell in love with in the Caribbean grow just as well if not better on the gulf coast of Florida where we live now. Our well established Plumerias have been blooming for a few weeks now and some of our new ones are blooming for the first time. Gardening offers the perfect respite from making jewelry. Ideas bloom amongst the flowers. Jewelry designs and the processes involved in making a piece of jewelry often play out in the back of my mind while I am working in the garden. I also love using our garden as a background for jewelry pictures. The tropics energize me and constantly inform my creativity.
