My Sea Glass Journey
I have been collecting sea glass for almost two years now, but I feel like I’ve been doing it much longer. It’s been a wonderful and unexpected learning experience for me. I’ve learned a lot about sea glass in a short period of time. Most of what I’ve learned I’ve learned from wading in the water and walking beaches along the east coast and the Caribbean collecting glass. I’ve learned from reading. I’ve learned from talking with others. I’ve learned by expanding my horizons and using sea glass from around the world in my jewelry.
This picture is of some of my sea glass jewelry creations using local Maryland sea glass, as well as sea glass from Hawaii, England and California!
For my jewelry creations I use sea glass from Hawaii, the West Coast, the Caribbean and England. I’ve learned a lot from exhaustive searches on the internet trying to identify an embossed piece of glass. I have found quite a lot of embossed bottle glass locally and was able to identify it’s origin. I never knew that Baltimore had so many German breweries in the early 1900′s!
