About their Business
We spend the winter months living aboard our boat in the northern Bahamas collecting rare sea glass shards. The area is rich in beautiful old sea glass as a result of numerous shipwrecks on the reefs during the early 1800’s.
Our jewelry features old and rare pieces of sea glass and pottery. We guarantee all our jewelry is made with genuine natural sea glass found by us on the beaches of the Abaco Islands. All of our jewelry is handcrafted and made with high quality materials. Our creations are found in gift shops, museums and art galleries in both the Bahamas and the US.
