About Us

Chesapeake Seaglass® jewelry features hand made creations designed by Chestertown, Maryland artist Nancy LaMotte. She uses sea glass collected solely from beaches along the Chesapeake Bay and maintains each piece in its original condition. To provide an illuminating background for the natural colors she uses sterling silver to create bracelets, necklaces, pendants, pins and earrings in up to 14 different colors.

Nancy LaMotte began working with jewelry in 1978 in Westchester, New York. She graduated from Boston University's School for the Arts in 1986 and moved to Chestertown in 1990. Together with her husband and two children she spends time along the shores of the Chesapeake collecting sea glass before retreating to her studio, often inspired by the day's catch.
