Sea glass

Some of my favourite sea glass
 I have been sorting out my sea glass collection to make some more small wall hangings.
The glass has been collected during holidays, its quite hard to find some of the colours, mostly they are green or white but I have found very pale greens, blues and turquoise which are good colours for summer. As you can see I have some lovely chunks in turquoise and pale blue a very small pieces of pink, purple and dark blue. 
I had several in the Guild exhibition which have all sold so I am making a couple more.
These are the hangings, the warp is a nettle yarn from the Himalayas and most of the weft is silk with some dyed tops.

I will need to go away again soon to find some more, any excuse.
