Krista and her husband, Tony create every unique piece of jewelry, using only real sea glass they have found on local beaches. The couple specializes in what they call "exotic" sea glass. These are pieces found on beaches near Santa Cruz that are the remnants of famous glass-blower James Lundberg, whom tossed pieces out over 40 years ago. "I love showing people our sea glass jewelry, since most people have never seen such amazing sea glass or the high level of craftsmanship that we use in creating each piece. The Scotts Valley Festival has such a beautiful park setting too!" says artist Krista Hammond.
