The Sharp Edges...
Something else I sell quite a lot of is beach glass jewelry. I grew up on Owasco Lake (a little finger) and I have a nasty beach glass habit. I can see a little piece of glass from a mile away! I have been collecting the little colorful bits since I was a young child- I have jars of it! One day I decided I needed to do something with all these smooth shards of historic glass, so I started painting it and making my pieces of treasure into earrings and necklaces.
My Grandfather used to tell me: "People are like pieces of beach glass, the sharp edges wear away with time".
