Lovely Life

Sorry, I haven’t been writing as much as usual…

I have been in a rut lately and having a hard time getting out of it. I am struggling with money, which is affecting my social life, and ability to pay for rent, food and other necessities. The ants are already starting to infest my home, even though it is still snowing. I keep trying to stay positive throughout all of this and reminding myself that it will all get better soon.

On the bright side, I have recently gotten a promotion at work, which has helped me stay more focused and motivated. My new job entails more research, which I love. My main goal is to work in nutrition research helping low income people, but for now I am trying to enjoy my career path and see where I end up.


I live across the street from the beach at the jersey shore, so I have been finding a lot of seaglass on my weekend runs and walks on the beach. I have decided to open an etsy account selling wire wrapped seaglass pendants. I only have a few pendants right now, but you can see my etsy store HERE

If you have any creative ideas that I can do with my seaglass, let me know!

  1. They’re beautiful!

    Congratulations on your promotion and I hope things pick up quickly for you in the areas you’re struggling. If you ever want any budgeting advice, just shout. 😉

  2. I love your honesty and thanks for sharing. Things will get better! You already know what you want and eventually you will get there! I’m really loving the layered necklace look and that could be another idea. Long and short pieces of sea glass if you want to add a chain with the wiring.

    This is such an inspiring story- thanks for sharing – loving how your down time turned into something positive – (your jewelry making ) and you’re a natural it seems – bravo


  4. Those are really cute! Sea glass is such a cool material- it has such unique irregularities. Sorry you are going through money troubles. I think having an outlet is a great thing. Even if Etsy isn’t a huge moneymaker (it isn’t for most people), it’s still cool to find people who connect with your work enough to want to wear it, and even a little money helps!
