We are a family of 5 cruising on our sailboat, and we LOVE to look for sea glass too! So far we have only wire wrapped it~ I'm collecting it , hopefully I'll find a really cool idea for it sometime!

I know my boys would love making such a beautiful discovery, but we have yet to find a good place to go hunting. I'm adding this to my "future adventures" list, though. :)

We live in the desert, so I haven't done this since I was a kid. But I love sea glass and driftwood, they are so adventurous as you think of where they have been.

Sea glass is such a beautiful thing isn't it - smooth and cloudy and perfect and amazing to think of the process of its creation!

So much fun to find sea glass. I love the way you used it in your ice decoration.

What a beautiful idea, my son loves picking up pebbles which we bring home to look at again and again. But for some reason sea glass hasn't been on our list of pick ups. Sad as it is one of my favourite things too. I'm going to get some on our next trip and see if we can make something pretty out of it for our xmas tree!

Thanks

Hi Kim - What an adventure you must be having. Let me know if you ever reach Scottish waters - east or west coast. Sea glass won't take up too much space either.

Debi - I'll swap you some sea glass for a sand dollar. We don't get such beautiful shells like these over here.

Yes - sea glass and driftwood go hand-in-hand. The trouble for me is lugging the driftwood of the beach. I think I need a trip to NW Scotland.

Thanks everyone for your comments and contributions - I like the Xmas decoration idea. Aha!

We LOVE collecting sea glass. Plus I kind of think of it as beach clean up is technically it is liter! hehe
We are headed to the beach for a bit of our holiday season and I am hoping to do some of our first sea glass collecting with the girls.
