sea glass basket weave cuff custom design 3446

 Beach glass or sea glass as we call it in Rhode Island is an artifact born of the action of water and sand on broken bottles. The soft colors range from light blue to dark green to cobalt.

Seeding a beach involves drinking the contents then smashing the bottles into fragments followed by a long wait to see how much of the frosted glass remains after several weeks of tidal action. Prized by crafters this natural product is available only to diligent beach combers.

 This custom basket weave cuff was made with hand dyed cord simulating this color palette. The extra wide design shows off the range if color creating a stacked effect. The cotton cord is slightly shrinkable when it gets wet.
