As an artisan and collector of sea glass, my interest is to create distinctive, functional wearable art that celebrates the natural characteristics of the materials, reflects the natural beauty and authenticity of the region, and provides a consistent connection point for those who visit and live here.  Together with other artisans and enthusiasts, I celebrate the beauty of sea glass through a full line of hair accessories and jewelry.  Visit the studio and see over 30 bottles of glass in all shapes and sizes.  Follow me @CapeAnnArt

Inspired by a passion for history and antique glass, Jacqueline began to create custom-designed hair accessories using pieces of sea glass and pottery she collected from the shores of Cape Ann. She displayed her work for the first time at the October 2004 Sea Glass Festival in Rockport. Since then she has created a full collection of hair accessories and jewelry, which are exhibited in numerous boutiques and galleries. Jacqueline’s designs have been featured in the Boston Globe, Cape Ann Magazine, and North Shore Magazine. In 2008 her work appeared in the book A Passion for Sea Glass by Carole Lambert. Jacqueline also helped form the seARTS Wearable Arts group, which presents a show during the holiday season in Gloucester each year. In 2011 she created and ran the first seARTS Wearable Art Runway Show which has now become a biennial event.
