From the Shores of Lake Erie: Jewelry

Beth Lampe Martin spends the summer months walking the beaches of Lake Erie, looking for beach glass, porcelain and shoreline findings. In turn, these pieces become fabulous beach glass jewelry, lamps, trays and anything else her imagination conjures up.

"The degree of color rarity is reflected in the prices of my jewelry designs. Frosted whites, browns and greens are considered "common" colors of beach/sea glass. The "softer" colors of greens, blues and amber are "uncommon" and the reds, yellows, turquoise, black, pink and blue are rare to extremely rare."

Beth is also well versed in the historical lore of beach glass as well as the mystery of their origin. "I am an instructor of beach glass jewelry, home decor and the similar at: Grand River Beads and Gift Gallery in Rocky River, Ohio, a suburb just west of Cleveland.

"My jewelry is made from authentic beach glass and has been tumbled by the sand, waves and rocks of this Great Lake. Lake Erie is the shallowest of all of the Great Lakes and gives us some of the best tumbled beach glass in the world!"
