I hoard beach-combed finds: sea-worn pieces of shell, pebbles tumbled by the tide, nuggets of seaglass, sherds of sea-pottery. I stash them in glass jars, admiring the colours; remembering walks along the shore; treasures brought by the tide.
Many pieces have been picked up with half a mind on setting them in silver. They languish in a jar marked “one day”.
In the meantime, inspired by an article in the current issue of Landscape Magazine, I’ve been crafting sea spoons and beach jewels.
