Mermaid’s Tears

That’s an old name for sea glass. We had an absolutely brilliant talk at our church last night by Sarah Good, of the Seawitch Glass Studios. Last year, when Jane was over from Canada, we met her at a Christmas Fayre.Sarah was so passionate about her craft that I felt she’d be a superb speaker for our group. And indeed she was- we were riveted by what she said- and delighted by the cards and jewellery she brought to sell.


It was fascinating to learn about glass ‘bubbles’, and why old red glass is so rare, and the places where the best glass is found…

Do check out her website – and if you are near Leicester, then you can find her stuff on sale at the Leicester Christmas Craft Fair, December 1st & 2nd [11am-4.30pm] A Christmas art, craft and design fair based in Leicester's 14th century Guildhall in the heart of Leicester's city centre.[next to the Cathedral, near the Richard III dig!] Free admission. The Guildhall, Guildhall Lane, LE1 5FQ
