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?
Where is your favourite local place?
