During this pandemic, Coastal Wood Designs is continuing to make art.
I wanted to find a way to give back to my community. I decided to make sea glass jewelry and donate 15% of profits to Coastside Hope. Coastside Hope is a nonprofit that helped create the “Coastside Crisis Fund”, a fund focused on coastal families in dire need during the pandemic.
Why sell sea glass to fundraise instead of wood art? I chose sea glass because of it’s symbolism. Sea glass is fragile and thrown into the rough tides of the ocean. It is not broken but molded into something more beautiful than before.
