About Us


Chesapeake Seaglass® jewelry features hand made creations designed by artist Nancy LaMotte. She uses sea glass collected solely from beaches along the Chesapeake Bay and along her own beachcombing travels.  Each piece is maintained in its original condition. To provide an illuminating background for the natural colors she uses sterling silver, and 14KT gold accents, to create bracelets, necklaces, pendants, pins and earrings in more than 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 with a degree in graphic design moved to the Mid-Atlantic in 1990. She spends time along the shores of the Chesapeake and the Atlantic collecting sea glass before retreating to her Delaware studio, often inspired by the day's catch.
