"My name is Mark Slagle. I love calling the Outer Banks of North Carolina my home. I have a beautiful wife Cyndi, one son Jacob, our yellow lab Rusty Banjo, and our kitten Carolina Peaches. I love Surfing, Fishing, Boating, Swimming and any excuse to be in, on, or near the water. I have always loved finding things on the beach from when I was little finding a starfish for my Grandmom to present finding a piece of beachglass. It is just like the changing tide it is always exciting.

We have always loved making things with our hands. From making things out of reclaimed wood or things we find on the Beach. My wife Cyndi started making jewelry. I found a heart shaped piece of beachglass and used her tools to make her a necklace for Valentine’s Day. Making jewelry for us came natural. My mother-in-law was our biggest fan and would always tell us we could sell our jewelry. Our friends and family encouraged us and inspired us to take something we love doing and getting it out there for others to see.

Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted by us. We take pride in each piece we make. A little bit of our heart goes into each piece and it is very humbling knowing that someone wants to wear our jewelry. Every piece we make is unique and we think of you who will be wearing it. We love what we do. It is just like the changing tide it is always exciting.
Thank You!!
Mark & Cyndi Slagle

I collect the leftover resin used in the glassing process of making surfboards. Then I hand cut each piece looking for unique color combinations. Once I have the desired shape I hand sand, and hand polish each piece, handcrafting them into a one of a kind piece of jewelry. I call these unique, colorful pieces of jewelry Surfglass."

Mark uses sterling silver wire and 18" sterling silver chains. We can also hang any pendant on a leather cord or stainless steel chain, with the length of your choice.

As of 2018, Mark is also exploring his passion for photography with note cards and prints. His seaglass and Frisco Pier prints have been instant favorites.
