I promised Karen to share some of my beachcombing finds. I find it to be very relaxing to walk along the beach and search out anything of interest. Here are some groups I found during my recent trip to Kauai:
Beach Glass…. I organized them into light and dark beach glass:
and a close up:
and light beach glass:
I also found some lovely beach pottery that had been transformed by the ocean:
and a close up image:
Then, on a black sand beach on the south side of the island, I discovered these lovely kukui nuts just waiting to be picked up:
I love to also collect shells:
and yet another close up:
some sand from Glass Beach for my collection:
WIP: Been working on some jewelry for my metal arts class, quilting Lori’s quilt for her daughter Cara, and also working on yet another freeform crochet scarf for myself. I bought most of the yarn in a little yarn shop in Hanalei, so I’m making it to remind me of the island:
That light blue glass is to die for. Can’t wait to see what you do with it!
Hope your feeling better..did you get my email?
Beautiful beach glass Carla. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.
WOW, what a haul. I love the light green in the first pics and then the blue one close to the top of the first pic. The shells are so much nicer than the ones I found in Marco Island…plus you have much more variety. Beach pottery…that’s a new one.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the freeform scarf…colors, texture…the whole thing…it’s a winner.
Thanks for sharing!!
Did Joe hafta pay a weight surcharge on your luggage?
Are you feeling better? The colors on the scarf are glorious!!
I’ve never seen beach glass — it’s beautiful — almost luminous. I love the colors in the scarf — my favorites.
How big are those bowls that you put the glass in? Looks like you found a lot of great stuff. I am jealous even though I have a bunch of glass here.
