Aloha Sea Glass

Aloha Sea Glass Hand crafted sea glass jewelry made by Marylou Forrest in Santa Cruz California. 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.

I finally set this sweet button that was found on the river Thames by my friend @cosmosvon . It was rounded on both sides so I made a little seat for it. Please DM if you would like it before I get it listed in my shop.

I’m feeling blue today. I read about the passing of my sea glass sister Leslie Dineen, this Davenport stack is for her. She fought a long hard battle with cancer. Several months ago she was gifted a Lundberg Star. I was honored to make it into a ring for her at no charge. She planned to wear it on her chemo days in hope that it would bring healing energy. Rest In Peace dear one. #honoringfriends #friendship #seasister #restinpeace #gonebutnotforgotten #seaglassfamily #stackerday #stackersaturday #davenportseaglass
