Designer, Ellie Nicholas

I acquired my ability to carve sea glass from my 23 year career in dentistry.  The carving & trimming  tools of each trade are quite similar.  I combined that skill with my love of the ocean & the magical powers of the sea's treasures.  My vast collection of these jewels inspired me to do something unique...thus Jersey Shore Sea Glass Carvings. My first carving was a heart - also known as "Mermaid Tears" {when naturally contoured by the ocean}. Gradually I learned to carve other shapes & images due to customer requests.  Soon I realized how unique & exciting it is to offer something vastly different than traditional wire wrapped sea glass jeweIry. I can now provide sea glass enthusiasts the opportunity to create their own personalized,  meaningful jewelry & pendants.
