I Love Sea Glass

I have always wanted to find a piece of sea glass on the beach. I’ve been saving an old issue of this magazine because it has a great article about sea glass, and because I adore the blue and green color palettes of the coastal decorating styles featured.

I was chatting with a friend at school recently about sea glass. Turns out he had buckets of it at home from frequent trips to the Bahamas.

He brought me a jar full of these treasures! I am planning to make a wire-wrapped pendant with some of the loveliest pieces.

I’m still hoping to find a piece of sea glass myself someday, but this is almost as good.

  • I love sea glass too…and like you have never found any myself. Someday…the best I have now is my “sea glass” quilt and some pieces I bought at a craft shop (not sure they are really sea glass, but they look like it)!

  • Ooh, those pieces are pretty! Maybe you need to make your own trip to the Bahamas?? πŸ™‚

  • That was very sweet of your friend! If you go to California’s beaches, you won’t have any trouble finding sea glass… I picked up loads of it there, but left it in California, or I’d give you some, too.

    There’s a beach way up in northern California called Glass Beach. You’d die! It’s gorgeous, and full of bits of sea glass, as the area used to be a military landfill. There were also pieces of copper, turned green from the exposure to elements… it’s a very unique and beautiful beach. I also found pieces of worn down porcelain and pottery shards. It’s very cool!

  • The colors are gorgeous!

  • I love the color of the green sea glass, it would go great with a dress I just bought. Perhaps you can show us your necklace when you get it done and we can all learn how to do it.

  • Love those colors. They are so fresh looking to me. Lucky girl. Can’t wait to see what you do with them. You need to plan a trip. I think that sounds good.

  • Hi Terri, they are so beautiful! I haven’t found any even I collect stones. Maybe we should go to Bahamas! Have a lovely, creative time! Teje

  • How fun! What a beautiful selection he brought for you! I can’t wait to see the pendant you make!

  • Come visit me. We’ll go to a great place at the coast and search for sea glass!

  • Sea glass is soo beautiful and IT IS hard to find isn’t it:) Happy you were able to score some!

  • I love sea glass too! I have yet to find any but I love looking at it. How nice of your friend to share with you. I can’t wait to see your pendant when you’re done so I hope you share it with us. πŸ™‚

  • Hello Terri,

    Your pieces of sea glass are just so beautiful. Looking forward to your new piece of jewellery.
    Happy days.

  • Our new house colors are all based on sea glass (I literally picked them up a week ago!)! Seriously, sometimes I swear we are related! I love the wire wrapped pendant idea, be sure to put it up when you’re done!

  • Looking forward to seeing what you do with your ocean treasures.

  • my mother lives right on pugent sound and gave me a whole bag of beach glass~awesome!
    I’ve kept it forever, thinking I’ll eventually make something of it. who knows.

  • Dearest sweet terri, these sea glasses are gorgeous and so precious. πŸ™‚ Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to you!
