A Touch of Glass

Meet the Maker - Emily Rought

What do you do?

I create individual pieces of sterling silver jewellery, using sea glass sourced from Seaham beach. I specialise in necklaces, bracelets and earrings, all of which are inspired by both fashion and nature.

How did you get started?

I started my business during lockdown, after collecting sea glass on my walks to Seaham beach. I spent a few months learning to make different pieces before starting the business.

Is this your full time job?

No, I do this alongside being a student.

Where do you create?

I create my jewellery at home.

Tea or coffee?

Neither

Where is your favourite local place?

Seaham beach.
