I love sea glass. Using it in jewelry helps me to be green and Eco friendly. Sea glass was once trash that was either discarded into the ocean by a litter bug or it could be from a ship wreck. Anyhow, it is washed around and tumbled by the surf and sand for 30 years or more and becomes amazingly soft and smooth. What was once trash becomes lovely gems. I love incorporating them in jewelry. Sea glass is pretty easy to find and is super gorgeous. Here are some pieces that are featured in my Etsy shop for sale.



The bracelet above is called Beach Goddess. I think this has to be my favorite piece. The colors all remind me of the ocean. This bracelet is made with a heavy sterling silver chain and sterling "S" hook. There are several fresh water pearls, cobalt blue glass beads, Swarovski crystals, one piece of aqua sea glass and two pieces of rare cobalt sea glass. These pieces of glass came from the beaches of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. You could have a piece of history just by owning this bracelet. See it here.
