Seaglass By Archie

Stand No:

My range of cute sea glass cards started in the summer of 2018 whilst walking my Labrador 'Bolt' on the sunny beaches in Margate. Like a magpie I began collecting sea glass....

Today I forage my sea glass in picturesque Folkestone. The glass is more tumbled as the beaches are stoney. This sea glass tumbling malarkey takes many years to polish glass smooth. Approximately 20 -100 years and more!

Where I find my sea glass, there was a Victorian glass factory and therefore my sea glass is over 100 years old.

I am a proud litter picker the beaches of Victorian rubbish!

The cards I make use very small and thin pieces of sea glass. I only use thin pieces which can be posted as a first class or second class letter so I don’t pick up every piece I find.

I hunt for sea glass all year around, even when the ground is frosted and it’s 3 degrees. This is some dedication! Bolt doesn’t mind as he’s a Labrador and swims all year round.

I take a flask of coffee with me and have my iPod listening to music, yes I am that free spirit singing and dancing on the beach (if you see me)!

All credit to Bolt as he’s the star of the show.

Love Archie & Bolt (woof) xxx
