Drifted sea horse

Drifted sea horse stands 8ins tall and is filled with beautiful aqua sea glass collected from the Moray Firth coastline.

I love the shapes of these small pieces of driftwood, I used guilding wax on the central piece.  The tag is hand made from linen.

Thanks for looking.


Sea glass lighthouse

This bottle was a perfect shape for the light house.  I love the contrast of the red & white.

I made the little boat by wire wrapping sea glass and driftwood and edged with guilding wax.  The bottle is filled with white sea glass, embellished with charms, crabs claw and twisted rope.


Beachcombers delight

This is one of my favourite altered bottles, it started out as a Singleton whisky bottle and turned into a beachcombers delight.

I love the colour of this bottle, the materials used were collected from the beaches along the Moray Firth as shown on the map. I used guilding wax on the slate and shell. The bottle is filled with white sea glass and accessorised with driftwood and sea glass.
