The last day of summer has passed swiftly. It has been beautifully warm with sunny blue skies and a glowing pink sunset as a final kiss for this season. I cannot cling to it, but must let go and welcome the fall just as the cycle of life perpetuates. Some matter is preserved more through the sands of time and from the artifacts we may speculate and wonder about past lives on our ancient home planet or beyond.

This post will be to some degree an extension of the previous “Oceanic Relics” where I presented some of my personal findings from the coast. Here I reminisce a little, digging back slightly further to uncover just a small selection of earlier pieces that echo representations of the warmest season I obsess over and coastal influences. In Awe of Abalone, pearls and shells, polished passed creature dwellings:

Below a few playful findings of rough heart shaped sea glass and a glass marble have traveled the seas and made their way to the shore right into my path. Organic heart shaped sea glass fragments with frosted texturing and slightly rugged edges as the journey through the sand and waters has shaped them. The unique vintage marble I found washed upon the sandy shore has been weathered over the years by the flowing tides and the sand has given it a smooth frosted appearance with slight scuffing. Wire encaged and strung from a repurposed mini ball chain. The antique oceanic marble is sky blue with cloud white swirling and surely has a story to tell of bright blue sky days long ago.
