Sea Glass is small pieces of glass, usually found on beaches, that have washed up in the waves. These pieces of glass would have originally been bottles or jars washed up in the sea then overtime, have been broken down into small pieces, their sharp edges weathered and softened. Anyone who has found a sparkling piece of sea glass on a beach will know the joy of finding such a treasure. Many people get hooked on the thrill of searching for these stunning little gems, offered freely from our seas and oceans all of the globe. I’m one of those people that love to search for sea glass. It is such a thrill when I find a really gorgeous piece of smooth glass in a stunning colour – turquoise is my favourite. I have made lots jewellery from sea glass which you can see here.
