Seaglass by the Sea Shore

hunting PEI for seaglassI am a passionate lover of seaglass.  As a child I remember always wanting the shiny toys like a lite bright, now that I’m older not much is changed. Being close to the shore and hearing the ocean washing back and forth has a calming effect. Treasure hunting the shores of PEI and hunting for sea glass has magical moments.  seaglass washed onto the beachesPerhaps I’m reclaiming my young days and that is what attracts me to the ocean, the beach and calls me to sea glass hunting.  I am a beachcomber of seaglass, collecting the shiny pieces of  sea glass after mother nature tumbles it onto the shore.

My passion for seaglass has become my hobby, well I should be honest it has become an obsession.  Sometimes we can record the journey that a precious gem has taken by the colour shape or type of glass.  
Jadeite seaglass wrappedThis piece of Jadeite dates back to 1940′s. Martha Stewart made Jadeite very popular increasing it’s value. I’ll save the research theory for another time. It ‘s hard to believe that glass was once made of sand. Glass becoming part of the sea again; washing back and forth with the elements of sand, stones and the tides. Turning the glass and tumbling it over time into a precious gem of seaglass, depositing it onto the shore for you to find. The glory of the hunt hunt for me is the end result after I have wire wrapped it into a beautiful piece of jewellery. 

Thank you for visiting my sea glass by the sea shore blog.  It is considered a good day when the sun shines bright and the seaglass sparkles on a sandy shore.

Take care my friend,
