I have been a Santa Cruz resident since I was 10 years old, and have been making jewelry as far back as I can remember.

Several years ago I was looking for new material to work with when I remembered a box of sea glass I'd collected in Hawaii. While researching how to drill sea glass I discovered the Sea Glass Lovers website, joined the group, and have since connected with sea glass lovers all around the world.

Sea glass people are amazing. They love to meet up, hunt and gather. They give gifts, share treasures and are some of the nicest people on the planet. Aloha Sea Glass was inspired by all of the friends that I have met through my sea glass adventures.

The literal meaning of aloha is “the presence of breath” or “the breath of life”. Aloha is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect. Aloha is sending and receiving positive energy. Aloha is a way of living a joyful life. Aloha is what I have found in my sea glass community.
