We are seaglass hunters for a few years now.

Finding seaglass in the Netherlands is not. easy, most of our treasure we find during holidays in Ireland, the UK, or else.

Jan is also a Tiffany enthusiast and he combined both hobbys to make this lampshade.

He also made one with mixed colours and is working on a green one.

One day I hope to turn some of my sea glass into a stained glass creation but I don't know if I'm ambitious enough to struggle with the curves of a lampshade. So lovely!
