Genuine Sea Glass and Mermaid Bracelets by Sea Glass Visions
These are similar to my “Mermaid Soul” bracelet recently featured in Glassing Magazine, The Mermaid Issue, May/June 2018.
One of the amazing tours we took on a recent visit to Greece was one from Athens to Sounio. We traveled to Sounio to visit the Temple of Poseidon.
(A wonderful coincidence was that our sail ended in Lavrio which is very close to Sounio, so not only did we see the temple on land, we were able to see the temple from the water. It was amazing and I can imagine how majestic and glorious it must have been for the ancient sailors to see.)
Our tour was an eight hour one which included a lovely ride along the coast heading to Sounio. We passed many beaches along the way. We also stopped at a seafood restaurant called The Akrogiali Restaurant – Fish Tavern, which was located on the water which had a very rocky beach. Well, I don’t have to tell you the first thing we did as out lunch was being prepared. A picture is worth a thousand words…
Lovely sea glass found on a beach behind Akrogiali Restaurant in Sounio, Greece
These are some of my sea glass finds from Fort Bragg California from a trip early this month. I’ve been very luck to visit there four times. Each trip I do see a difference in the glass. The pieces of sea glass on the beach are quite small, due to both people glassing over the years and the action of Mother Nature bringing the glass up and down with the tides since the early 1900’s when it was a landfill. These beaches provide fabulous pastel colors that are amazingly smoothed and frosted that are not found on any other beaches.
If you’re visiting this page you’ll see that it’s been quite some time (years) since I’ve posted anything new. I am still VERY interested and VERY involved with my sea glass! I keep an active Facebook page, Instagram account, Twitter account, Pinterest page and Etsy shop! I hope that you’ll continue to follow me via the links below:
“Where do you find sea glass?” is a question people often ask me.
If you’re lucky like I was, someone will show you a spot. If I hadn’t been shown a sea glassing spot by someone who had been shown that spot by someone else, I might not be writing this post today.
I’ve learned that a beach that blessed you with a handful of sea glass on your first visit may not be as giving on your second visit. This can happen anywhere. Don’t ever give up on a spot. All it takes is a quick walk and you will know whether or not it’s worth staying or if it’s time to head to another spot. Perhaps another sea glasser beat you to it on that day. Check back in a few days. Continue reading →
