Bella, my beloved heart dog passed in 2015. This set me on a journey to find blue sea glass on the beaches where she used to run and swim near our home in Melbourne Beach, Florida. When I was fortunate to find a piece, I felt her presence nearby. This quest to find blue sea glass led me to searching, collecting, and learning about the beauty of all colors of sea glass. My occupation as a flight attendant for a major airline has provided me the great privilege of being able to travel to beaches around the world. I have collected from the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Pacific seas and oceans, and many other bodies of water.
While collecting different colors, I was inspired to design sea glass jewelry and other related items. It has become a passion. Bella is missed every day, but I am grateful for the years we had together and for this creative outlet which has allowed me to heal keeping her spirit close to my heart.
