sea glass altar locket
This necklace is from the "Where the Forest Meets the Sea" Collection. A few words from an essay of mine that inspired this collection:
I stand with my toes sinking into the sand with my senses enveloped by the push and the pull of the crashing waves in front of me.
I come to the sea to remember there is magic around me as I watch light shimmer dip and twirl where water and solid ground meet. As the tide moves closer and then back again I think about the conversation the sea has each day with the moon as they keep time with the light and shadow dancing around them.
I come to the sea to remember my stories. It is at the sea that I hear my grandmother’s laughter see my parents holding hands feel the joy of finding a whole sand dollar and remember the first time I was brave enough to wade all the way out to my waist gripping my grandfather’s hand with each bobbing step.
I come to the sea to let go of what no longer serves me as I ask her to take pieces of grief and all that will not be out with the tide. I imagine all of it tumbling with shell fragments and driftwood until it entwines with the seaweed that sways farther than I can see.
I come to the sea to remember me…
This necklace includes a brass locket that holds a secret hand written message from me to you and a selection of sea glass my daughter and I found at North Beach in Port Townsend Washington. This is one of my new favorite offerings; I like to think of it like a wearable altar because the locket is thick enough that it can hold sacred treasures that you want to carry with you.
The locket is just about 2 inches in size and the necklace is 28 inches around. An antique brass chain is used. Your sea glass will be similar to the sea glass shown here but will be chosen just for you.
