This beach themed trinket dish is made using seaglass, sand, pebbles and shells. Transparent blue and white resin tints are added for colour. A tiny fine silver turtle handmade by me has also been added.
What is seaglass?
In Seaham 100 years ago, a bottle factory dumped waste glass daily into the sea. Waves therefore tumble and shape the glass. I am lucky however to live close by to beautiful Northumberland beaches.
Hand-cleaned North Sea scallop shells are sourced from Grimsby, these large scallop shells are lightweight yet strong.
The size of each beach themed trinket dish varies between 12cm and 13cm.
Each of my pieces is different and therefore unique!
Please note that due to the pouring process however, there may be slight imperfections and colours may vary.
Email me at Claire@ToDot.co.uk if you would like another colour or have any specific requirements.
Please allow three weeks to make. I will confirm at the time of ordering the expected delivery date.
Price also includes UK signed for postage.
I have been making jewellery from metal clay for a few years. I completed a year long course at the London Jewellery School in September 2015. This resulted in a Diploma in Creative Jewellery. I learnt many techniques using silver clay. Other skills include fused glass, resin, perspex, enamelling and silversmithing. I also attended a 3 day course. This enabled me to demonstrate different skills and techniques in working with silver clay. This resulted in me achieving Art Clay Silver Level 1 Diploma (ACWUK) in April 2016. This therefore, qualifies me to teach basic silver clay classes.
I was awarded North Tyneside Business of the Month. It reflects comments from people who have completed a course with me. This was in 2018.
