Topsail Island Treasures – Jewelry and Decorative Items From Sea Glass

Holiday Ornaments By Topsail TreasuresTopsail Island Treasures is an “at home” business specializing in creations made from Sea Glass and other treasures found on Topsail Island.  Owner/creator/artist, Kim Nelson, transforms her love for the Island into jewelry, decorative items and photographs …… Unless otherwise noted, every shard of Sea Glass and every Sharks Tooth in her creations were found on (or off-shore) Topsail Island.

The Sea Glass found on Topsail Island began as broken, discarded glass — most often from bottles left on the beach or thrown off a pier or a boat.  Sometimes it is from household debris from hurricanes, nor’easters or other unfortunate disasters.  The broken shards of glass are naturally tumbled in the sand and surf.  They are transformed into beautiful gems.

In addition to Topsail Island Treasures, Kim is a full-time social worker.  She says, “the beach is my refuge.  It helps me keep a healthy perspective on life. The salt, sand and sea bring hope and rejuvenation.  I often tell my clients that people are sometimes like Sea Glass…. Broken and discarded.  With time (and sometimes distress) we can become whole and beautiful.”
