First of all , I would like to say thanks for including me in your team. My name is Lori Stewart. I live on the south shore with my blacklab Willow. We have been collecting beach glass since 2002. I started to make jewelry with it about 3 years ago . I find it relaxing to make something out of things I've picked up along the beach. It's amazing feeling to know that someone in the world buys your piece and loves to wear it. That's Willow doing what she loves best , swimming and that's me at my finest , wearing my southwester , getting ready to hit the beach in a rain storm.
