I See Sea Glass

26 Jan

I have been feeling a little nostalgic today.  Like most mornings, I have hopped on Etsy, and found myself looking at sea glass jewelry that reminds me of home.

Sea Glass is the result of broken pieces of glass spending years and years being tumbled and smoothed out in the ocean waves.  Most real sea glass is either brown, clear, green or blue.  These are the colors that bottling companies use, and most other colors can be fabricated, or faked.  On the beaches of Maine, you are most likely to find dark green like Heineken bottle, brown like a Guinness bottle, or clear like an old Coke bottle.  Dark blue used to be more common a couple decades ago when glasses and bottles were sometimes made for medicine or decoration.


The rough and natural texture it really rather comforting, don’t you think?

    Sea Glass will always remind me of Okinawa! I’m trying to collect a lot of it (as well as beautiful shells) to decorate our new home 🙂
