Chris and Theresa
From the 2018 Rhode Island Gem and Mineral Show in Warwick, RI
We, Chris and Theresa, are Seaside Stones!
Seaside Stones includes a seasonal rock shop in Eastport Maine. We carry jewelry made from our cabochons, cabochons, and rocks, minerals, and fossils. We also carry Bouncies from Bohemia - we are the only store in Maine that carries them.
Seaside Stones (formerly Earth First Productions) is also a traveling "rock shop". At rock and mineral shows, we specialize in cabochons and the jewelry we make with our cabochons...and other things depending on the show. We do rock and mineral shows from Maine to Texas. In 2019 we did 13 shows; in 2020 we will probably do close to 20 shows!
Seaside Stones also sells online, via this website, our Facebook page, two Facebook groups, and on Instagram.
The Seaside Retreat is also part of Seaside Stones. It is our vacation rental in Eastport Maine, available for rent through Airbnb.
Earth First Productions officially began in 2014, doing rock and mineral shows in Texas and Louisiana. Seaside Stones (the store) opened on Black Friday 2017.
Our business is a product of a hobby that grew out of control - . Chris has been a rockhound since he was a child. Theresa learned to love rocks because of him, and now makes most of the jewelry for the business.
Theresa and Chris are also the founders of the Washington County Gem and Mineral Society, the home of the Washington County Rockhounds. Theresa serves as the president and Chris as the treasurer.
