My sister and I reconnect by going on beach vacations and collecting sea glass. three years ago we decided to make sea glass jewelry and share our passion for sea glass at art festivals, galleries and with our friend. Shirley lives in Oregon and I live in the desert. For me getting out of the desert and going to the beach is heaven. I love finding old things and reworking things to create something - recycled and upcycled which defines our sea glass jewelry.

PS. It looks like it was originally a US Army trunk from WWII that they issued to soldiers going over seas by ship.

Re: My Version of Junk in the Trunk...

What I love about this old trunk and its new use is that it is sturdy, durable and captures the imagination, plus I suspect you can open it and put a lot of things inside. I'm always looking for new ways to store stuff.

Re: Sea Glass and Sea Shells in Candle Holder

Docmom - you put the shells in from the top. The candle holder part screws off so quite simple really. Got the holder in a garden/florist store.
