Since the launch of Driftwood Dreaming’s new online shop selling UK hand made coastal gifts, I’ve been delighted with the response so far. I’ve had some really encouraging remarks about the look and feel so I think I may have got it just about right.
My new shop now sells my full range of coastal gifts which include all of my items made from driftwood. Driftwood is a really lovely and fun material to work with. To start with, finiding it is great fun. I’m lucky enough to visit Aberystwyth on a very regular basis to visit my family so I take the opportunity every visit to get up at the crack of dawn and head down to the beach in search of driftwood, sea glass and any other interesting beach finds. It’s a fantastic feeling when I find a really great piece of driftwood and start to see it come to life into a driftwood mirror, a driftwood clock or the hull of a driftwood boat!
Driftwood Dreaming online also sells my full range of jewellery. This include my pendants made from the stunning pieces of sea glass that I have found on the beach. I’ve mixed these with sea pottery that I have also found, along with some stunning silver starfish charms. Mix in a few beads, diamantes and fresh water pearls and you have some beautiful coastal jewellery ready for any occassion or just for day to day wear.
As well as driftwood and jewellery I have also made a range of home accessories with a coastal theme – to bring that sunny coastal feel into your home. From Lobster buoy door stops, Beach in a Jar and Beach Hut Bird Houses, you have some unique gift ideas for friends and family who love the coast and all things nautical.
I will be adding new hand made coastal gifts on a regular basis to keep checking back!
