Kittiwake jewellery was an idea born by Melinda Llewdib in 2006
'I have wonderful memories of days spent beach-combing along the English coastline looking for treasures and this continues today. I am particularly fond of sea glass which comes in many shapes and colours. Sea glass is worn to smooth organic forms & sculpted by the constant ebb and surge of the tide over decades, these gems are now highly sought after. I love the simplicity of this special glass and have added sterling silver to make my jewellery. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.'
It is the awe of nature and the sheer beauty & romance of what the sea has left behind that inspired Melinda to create her stunning jewellery.
