                              A Completely Unique, One-Of-A-Kind Design!
We were recently contacted by Diane, a customer who had purchased several of our pieces in the past. She asked to work with us on designing a OOAK pendant. She was very inspired by a trip to Bermuda, and wanted to incorporate the colors of island sea, sky, and sand.We offered a selection of Bermuda sea glass, glass beads, and gem chips to incorporate into the project. We planned the piece together, and she and her husband, Les, were very pleased with the results. (You can see Diane's 'Taste of Bermuda" finished pendant below.) We asked her if she would write a review of her experience with 'neptune's confetti', and she was happy to oblige. She sent us this lovely paragraph (below), and we were blown away by the kind words of Diane and Les. We enjoy working with our customers to create perfect and personal pieces!
      {If YOU have  an idea or a special piece of sea glass, 
please contact us through this website!}

   Penny and Brian Jenkins of "Neptune's Confetti" are truly gifted and talented artisans and artists in the truest sense of the terms. They work together and in perfect harmony in order to create amazing jewelry from a wide assortment of naturally-polished sea glass which range in a lovely color spectrum from the subtle to the vibrant. Each painstakingly crafted product is a unique, one-of-a-kind original, a "mini-masterpiece" in its own right, that anyone would be proud to own and wear. We have purchased several of their items, both for ourselves and for friends and family, and we are consistently pleased with the quality of their work. Penny and Brian have the extraordinary ability to envision and then craft each gem-like piece of sea glass into a work of art that is both delicate in design, yet durable in construction. In spite of the work involved in making the jewelry, the cost of each item is extremely reasonable. We, along with our family and friends, wear our jewelry proudly and receive many compliments from admirers regarding these beautiful adornments.  Penny and Brian are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful, and they are eager to answer and address any questions and concerns regarding their work. They are a joy to do business with, and we eagerly look forward to making further purchases from "Neptune's Confetti" at future craft shows. We are never disappointed with the craftsmanship of Penny and Brian Jenkins.

Our Search for 
Sea Glass
The thrill of the hunt...
One of the most delightful aspects of creating jewelry for "neptune's confetti" and "WornElements" is the unending search for beautiful, genuine, quality glass. Whether it has been tumbled by the sand and ocean waves to create luminous sea glass, or smoothed for years by river currents and silt to create "fresh water"  sea glass (also known as "river glass"), it has to be "the real deal". This is easily recognized by the smooth shape, satiny feel, and frosty appearance. These qualities are indicative of many years being spent in the water, causing lime to leach out to the surface and crystallize. This true beauty can not be achieved by man-made methods. 
Our search has lead us in many directions, both geographically and within the realm of the worldwide web. Our painstaking online research has put us in contact with certified authentic sea glass collectors from all over the world, with whom we trade, buy, and barter. We have a chance to hear the exciting back stories of where their glass was collected, be it a "rubbish tip" on the coast of southern England where a ship went down 100 years ago, or the fishing waters of Gibraltar, Spain where constant clamming churns up gorgeous pieces of antiquated glass, to name a few. But our favorite part of this endeavor has to be when we search and collect the glass ourselves. Our first opportunity was our honeymoon trip to Bermuda, which you can read about on our "About Us" page. Next was our first trip to Maine, which is detailed on our "Message From The King" page. Below are photos chronicling  our  glass collecting adventures:
Sandy Hook, New Jersey
Our recent trip to Sandy Hook on a blustery October day proved fruitful! 
On the beach one day...beautiful "micro" necklaces the next!
Monhegan Island, off the Coast of Maine
This tiny island can only be reached by boat twice a day. The rocky coast provides a host of glass collecting opportunities!
Shenandoah River, Virginia
Fresh water "sea glass" or "river glass" was a challenge to find! This picture features a finished piece of jewelry photographed in its "natural habitat" for our website.
Fortescue Beach, New Jersey
One of our best finds ever, and right in our own home state!
Pemaquid Point, Maine
One of the best things about our Maine vacations is our ability to create our jewelry on the very edge of where we found the sea glass!
St. Georges, Bermuda
Here we are taking a break at the very top of the island. This shoreline was dotted with sea glass, as were the other beaches we visited in St. Georges. We collected carefully and only took what we could use. Dont worry, we left THOUSANDS of pieces behind...we can't wait to come back!
                Have that 'special' piece of sea glass
