Treasures will hold a special weekend event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, April 19, at 116 Second St. in Lewes, when it hosts one of the artists of SeaGals Gallery of Delaware, Sue Lemmons, who creates beautiful, unique sea glass jewelry and seashell art.
As native Delawareans, the SeaGal sisters demonstrate a true appreciation for Delaware beaches and the natural elements found along its shores in their artful creations.
“Growing up, we were fortunate enough to be able to spend summers at the beach - camping and doing all the fun things that go along with it - fishing, crabbing, clamming and canoeing. We also spent countless hours together beachcombing and collecting things over the years which inspired us to create natural, unique items. Our handcrafted sea glass jewelry and seashell art are created using items we find - left in their natural state as much as possible using a healthy dose of imagination,” said Lemmons.
SeaGals take pride in their unique, one-of-a kind designs. They make pendants for women, men, teens and kids.
“SeaGals Gallery simply would not exist had the value of imagination and creativity not been instilled by our mother, June Coffin-Rankin, and our families, who have been avid supporters. We mainly use sea glass from the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean and find most of it ourselves. However, we have two retired aunts, Elaine Willey and Carolyn Reed, both of Milford, who took up beachcombing and frequently bring us what they find. They have been a huge help in keeping us stocked, which also gives us more time to create jewelry and shell art,” said Lemmons, founder of Seagals.
