Cristybella has a particular affinity for the seashore and treasures from the ocean. Seaglass doesn't wash up along the beaches of the Texas gulf coast, but on her travels to other shores, she has been fortunate to find a few pieces. She also expanded her collection through a highly strategic eBay acquisition.
While in Warrenton last Friday, we noticed plenty of yard sculpture. One in particular was a little metal item resembling a leafless tree, just the branches. I didn't even notice it amongst the millions of other products lined up as far as the eye could see. But Cristy pointed out that if we hung seaglass from that little tree, it would be a pretty addition to our house. I hadn't considered it before, but had to agree.
On the other hand, why not just use natural branches?
So we did.
And this is the result. One final touch will be to add sand to the bottom of the vase, that crucial element, that when combined with a broken piece of glass, an endless ocean wave and abundant time will produce a beautifully rounded frosty droplet of sea glass.
