Tidal Treasure

It is fascinating that someone’s trash, a broken bottle perhaps, can undergo the strength of the ocean and wash up on shore like a true piece of treasure. This is the beautiful story of sea glass. Each wave that hits it causes the glass to soften and frost over to become a thing of beauty. Susan has taken these treasures and formed something of her own: her Sea Glass Collection.


Each piece is hand picked and paired with her 24kt handcast gold accents. The hand-knotted chains of Jade and Aqua Quartz below compliment the sea glass so beautifully.


Susan has a variety of sea life intaglios for this collection. The photos below show the crab, sea turtle, shell and starfish pendants.



The peaceful colors that are found in sea glass are also a perfect accent in the home. These glass tiles would be gorgeous in a bathroom or kitchen- be it at your coastal getaway or in your own home.

These chandeliers remind us of Susan’s designs. What a fantastic use of sea glass!


This kitchen would be gorgeous for a coastal home with the ocean hues, the glimmering backsplash, and the clam shell full of sea glass balls on the breakfast table- but we would love this look in any home. The beach vibes would bring a good mood to anyone who enters this kitchen!Turquoise-Kitchen-Lanterns.-Meredith-McBrearty.-

The Vietri Sea Glass collection of dishes below are a work of art almost too pretty to put away in a kitchen cabinet! Perfect for summer entertaining!IMG_0870

So how do you use sea glass? We’d love to know!
