Archie says - My range of cute sea glass cards started in the summer of 2018 whilst walking my Labrador 'Bolt' on the sunny beaches in Margate. Like a magpie I began collecting sea glass. Today I forage in picturesque Folkestone. The sea glass is more tumbled as the beaches are stoney. This sea glass tumbling malarkey takes many years to polish smooth. The pieces could be well over 100 years old! I'm litter picking the Victorians rubbish!

The cards I make use very small and thin pieces of sea glass. I only use thin pieces which can be posted as a first class or second class letter so I don't pick up every piece I find.

I hunt for sea glass all year around, even when the ground is frosted and it's 3 degrees. Bolt doesn't mind as he's a Labrador and swims all year round.
