Iridis Crafts was born in 2014, when Louise and her family went on holiday to the North East coast of England. Her son Ben loved throwing stones into the sea, so a pebbly beach it had to be! The beach was scattered with sea glass and collecting it soon became an addictive hobby for Louise.
Sorting the treasure into different colours and wondering what to do with it, she decided to make sea glass pictures.
These unique pictures are created from sea glass, pebbles, shells, driftwood and twigs, with a bit of artwork to complete the designs. Louise also makes also sterling silver sea glass and Abalone shell jewellery, keyrings, bookmarks, painted pebble fridge magnets, dreamcatchers, decorations, hand-crafted mobiles, suncatchers and a range of greetings cards. Something for everyone!
Louise also enjoys creating pieces to order.
