I spend most of my days beachcombing and searching for sea treasures to make beach-themed jewelry.
While searching for seashells on the beach in Ankaran, Slovenia, I was finding a lot of glass, ceramics, old coins, silverware, and other amazing 100+-year-old finds. With some research, I found out that I find so many amazing historic items because in the past (around 100 years ago), Italian ships would come here and dump trash in the sea. Over the years, with the waves and many storms, historic finds that are hidden under the mud in the sea wash up on the beach.
One of my proudest finds is a 200-year-old undamaged Maraschino bottle from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. After finding it, I returned it back home to the Cosmacendi Palace, where the maker of the bottle once lived, and which is now the Museum of Ancient Glass! It was not only an incredible find, but also a bottle without any proof that it even existed.
I love using a piece of history in my jewelry and other creations that make it more special and one of a kind. If you are interested in my jewelry, you can find it on my Etsy.
