"I am a self taught jewelry artist of ten years. Earlier occupations have included carpenter, wood worker, baker, and gardener. Besides roaming the beach and hanging out in my studio, I love my garden and my cats and dogs. Living in far flung and remote Downeast Maine gives me plenty of opportunity to search for treasure at the beach. The craggy shoreline here harbors many secrets…the origin of each piece of sea glass remains a mystery. Medicine bottle? Pirate’s flask? The remnants of a long past beach party? I can only imagine. I find every piece of the glass that I use, never altering it in any way before making it into jewelry." -Laura Pierce
