About Gone to the Beach:
Gone to the Beach is a whimsical mixed media piece started with an upcycled frame. I used crushed glass to represent the ocean and the sky. Natural sand and seashells complete the background where the flamingos can play. Also to finish the piece off is antique or vintage jewelry.
Having discovered this new creativity fairly late in life, I have found a passion for up cycling and rehoming fun and beautiful picture frames and/ or old windows. I search high and low for special antique and vintage jewelry and sometimes crushed glass and other natural items to decorate the glass in the frames and windows. Sometimes I also use resin to cover my designs. I also make custom pieces using special family heirloom jewelry.
