Alice Taylor

Alice Taylor personally finds each piece of sea glass for her sterling silver jewelry on Washington’s beaches. There is no mechanical tumbling or shaping. The glass is naturally tumbled by the surf of Puget Sound, making it genuine sea glass.

Surf-tumbled sea glass becomes more rare each day. Since the 1960s, cities no longer dump their garbage into the sea and individuals litter far less. Due to our enlightened environmental practices, sea glass dwindles with each piece found. The pieces Alice finds are tumbled naturally for 60 to 120 years against large rocks and pebbles. Each piece of glass likely has a long history as a functional object in someone’s home and then an even longer history in the water.

Alice was an Arts Administrator for 25 years. Most recently managing the Public Art Program for Washington State Arts Commission. Today she lives in a small beach house along Puget Sound with her husband, Charlie. When she isn’t beach walking you can find her in her studio, garden, kayaking, taking road-trips to national parks or the city for a theatre date.
