This necklace features a sterling silver circle stamped with the outline of the state of Maine with a heart stamp in the middle. This necklace is a fundraiser for the victims of the Lewiston Maine shooting, stamping tiny things is hard, so don't mind the heart not being exactly where Lewiston is.
One of my friends posted the list of GoFundMe pages for the victims, and I read every single one, but the ones that stood out to me the most were of the victims within the deaf community. I took ASL at Hall-Dale over videoconferencing way back before zoom was even a thing, so I would like to donate 100% of the proceeds from this to those families specifically.

I have always been fascinated by the ocean and the beach, and many of my fondest memories are of my childhood growing up near the coast of Maine. Due to my career as a web designer, I now live closer to Lake Erie (which surprisingly looks like a sea it’s that big) but I feel the calling of coastal life now more than ever.
My collection of jewelry and accessories is inspired by my favorite beaches of this great country. The sea/beach glass in each one of my designs can be traced to a specific coastal region, and primarily features glass that I have either hand-picked or sourced myself (aka friends and family who also enjoy beach combing). Each piece containing glass is specified as containing sea or beach glass in the design details, referring to the regions in which the glass was sourced: beach glass is from the Great Lakes region, and sea glass is from the ocean.
