Shards – Dragon Scales


I have been wanting to play with shards for a while now, as well as try out the Bella Donna Glass, Dragon Scales.  I mean, come on, with a name like that, how can it not be epic!!!

Finally, I broke into the piggy bank and ordered some from the creators of Bella Donna Glass, Arrow Springs.  As always, I received my order very quickly.  Arrow Springs is the very first place I ever ordered glass from, and did so up until they stopped carrying it.  Now I love their Bella Donna line, with lots of silvery goodness in some very unique colors.  I can’t wait to try it out, and show you all the results!

Cayucos Sea Glass Festival

On March 8-9th, 2014 Sparkling Waters Studios was honored to be a vendor at the Cayucos Sea Glass Festival, in beautiful Cayucos, CA. 

Located at the end of the Cayucos Pier, the festival is one of the most magnificent sea glass festivals I have ever attended or vended at, (although all of them are quite fun!).  We really enjoyed getting to know the Sea Glass Sistahs, a group of amazing women who work tirelessly to put on this event, as well as getting to know the town of Cayucos.  It’s a small costal town, with some amazing restaurants, wonderful cookies from the Brown Butter Cookie Company, charming hotels and B&B’s, and, of course, a magnificent beach!   We were also excited to see some of the vendors we met at the Santa Cruz Sea Glass Festival, and hopefully will see them again this November!  

Here are a couple pictures we snapped!
