So the weather. Apart from a dreich, rather windy couple of days this week it continues to be sunny and summery. This balmy, fluffy white cloud, blue sky weather makes me want to don a floaty frock and spend a day beach combing. I could easily spend an entire day happily gazing at the strandline and at piles of pebbles and filling my pockets full of treasure. It’s likely that I would forget to have lunch. This has happened once or twice.
When I put the silver pebble down onto the wood the small pile of handmade antique beads nearby in various shades of aquamarine seemed to leap out, as did my trusty stash of tiny shell buttons and some little drilled shells. A small seaside-inspired collection was inevitable.
It echoes tiny treasures brought home from the beach, Cornish coves, rockpools, piles of pebbles on the beach at Walberswick, seaglass collections and holiday memories. It’s called the beachcomber series and it’s in my etsy shop.
Gorgeous, I love your jewellery so much, such wonderful beach treasures.
Beautiful pieces Emma and I love that stripy looking pebble.
Such a beautful series emma 🙂 I do love reading about your inspirations for your jewellery, it always inspires me 🙂 I loe the silver pebble you've made, for me it sums up your beautiful work 🙂 it's wonderful. I only wish I had the money right now to buy it, a girl can dream 😉 safxxx

What exactly is it about pebbles, Emma. I love them so much too, the way they sit in the hand, the way they are nearly spheres or oblongs but not quite, their smooth ei lines, the surfaces weathered by the sea. Just love 'em, always have! Your silver one is so tactile looking. X
They're beautiful Emma! I especially love your silver paired with buttons!!!
Emma, they are lovely. I know exactly what you mean about pebbles and also losing track of time beachcombing. There is always one more to find. The jewellery is beautiful, you have really captured the essence of beachcombing.

Our bedroom window sill is becoming a beach, with all the collections of pebbles and shells we add from our coastal visits! They remind us special places.

Truly lovely Emma! And I know what you mean about the pleasure of beachcombing. I lost my entire family at Saltburn beach the other day as I was walking along staring so intently at the ground that I left them at the other end of the beach and then couldn't find them again! xx
Beautiful collection, I love your work 🙂
