Mudlark Tides

Mudlark Tides pieces are touchstones to the past, created from artifacts I find on the foreshore of the Thames River in London.  I personally collect fragments of clay pipe-stem from the Thames foreshore, thoroughly clean & sterilize them, and combine them with elements reminiscent of other Thames-side finds (glass, ceramic, coral, amber, silver, etc) to create truly unique pieces of wearable history which are evocative of London's past.  Centuries spent in brackish water and mud leaves the pipe fragments redolent of the river.  Each piece is sold with a writeup about the origins & history of the pipestems, and care instructions and materials.  I am currently preparing to have these pieces available to order online, at an upcoming Etsy shop.  The link will be posted as soon as it's live!
