Judy began her art of creating unique sea glass designs several years back. She is a self-taught wire artist. Her earlier works were given as gifts to friends and family who encouraged her to begin her sea glass jewelry business. After retiring from 25 years of teaching, she began taking metal smithing classes and now enjoys merging wire wrapping and metal working into her one-of-a-kind designs. Materials used include a variety of wire and metals from copper to silver and gold. Her passion is using recycled gifts from the sea such as authentic sea glass, sea pottery, sea marbles, shell, and pearls.
Although she currently lives in northern NH, Judy was raised in Massachusetts and spent many happy hours on the beaches of Cape Cod. The ocean has always been in her blood and in her heart. She and her husband Bob are avid sea glassers combing the beaches for tidal treasures from Provincetown to Plymouth. Tidal Treasures by Jude is excited about the opportunity to be part of the Artist Cottages at Orleans Market Square for the upcoming season.
