In PEI we offer miles and miles of walking shoreline for beach combing. Beachcombing can be a special hobby for some and a business for other. I have a number of beautiful genuine pieces of Sea Glass or beach glass from PEI that I have wrapped with wire and made into pendants.
What can I “wire wrap” for you? Bring it in the shop and I’ll teach you to wire wrap that special piece for you.
Everyone has a collection of one thing or another, and perhaps;
You are a top of the dresser, back pocket, sandy beach or sparkly things collector? Do you know?
Do you walk the beach in search of sharks teeth, sea glass or beach glass and unshapely shells?
Perhaps you have a China plate on your dresser filled with pretty stones from your last vacation?
Maybe you carry lucky junk in your pocket like a coin, marble, stone or safety pin.
Do you appreciate ity bity things with large sentimental value?
Do you save tokens, clips, bright buttons, and tiny items?
If you said yes to any or all then I can help you turn your treasures into wearable’s or gifts to give to family, friends or as souvenirs from PEI. During the summer months our little gift shop turns into a great spot for a workshop, stop by and try your hand at a wire wrap. Visit soon and take part in one of My Island Experiences, be it a full day (beachcombing), a half day (tea/tour/craft) or a half an hour (wire wrapping seaglass) there is fun for everyone.
Wire is a versatile material and twists easily. It is strong enough to hold all your cherished items that you can wear and be admired by many.
Here at the Island Made gift shop I use a variety of coloured wire or gold filled, copper and sterling silver to wrap your cherished pieces secure.
Come have a look at a few I have done that sit in our shop ready to wear.
