Sea Glass Hunting in the Summer on Cape Cod

I'll be the first to admit it.  I definitely prefer to look for sea glass, when I'm the only person on the beach!!  

I've noticed that I'm going to the beach more frequently the last couple of weeks,  in preparation for having to share "my beaches" with the many summer visitors.

I have about one more week of solitude and then all bets are off!  I do truly LOVE having more people around (except when I'm looking for sea glass:))  The Cape seems to come alive and it helps the economy.

So, I'll enjoy my alone time for one more week, and then I'll welcome all the special things that summertime on the Cape brings...warmer and sunnier weather, lunch at the outside cafes, bike rides along the canal, swimming, maybe some outside yoga, and YES, sharing "my beaches" for a few weeks:))

Maybe I'll see you at one of them? Ha ha!!

Enjoy this wonderful time and I hope you get a chance to go outside andcape cod beach connect with nature:)

Sea Glass Jewelry in Summer Ready Styles

In case you haven't had a chance to visit in a while, I thought I'd catch you up to date on a new sea glass jewelry design!

If you're like me and wear simple white tees in the summer, you'll love this new design.  It's a hammered sterling silver circle pendant (with matching earrings if you like).  

This is a simple, classic design to jazz up your outfit and looks great on white or black.

The sterling shines a bit and there's a tiny sparkle from 2 Swarovski crystals.  Sea glass and crystals are sewn onto the hand shaped pendant and earrings.

What I love is that this necklace and earrings could be worn during the day right into

evening.:)aqua sea glass on hammered pendant and earrings

Sea Glass, Pretty Stones and Quahog Shells?

quahog shellYup!  When I go beach combing, I'm always on the lookout for sea glass.  That's my number one goal, but if you live on Cape Cod, you know it's not exactly bountiful in these parts.

So, I also tend to pick up pretty stones and shells, and I LOVE the purple and white pieces of the inner quahog shell:)

Some fun facts about quahogs: 1. also known as clams and littlenecks 2. found in mud flats along the eastern coast - mostly concentrated between Cape Cod and New Jersey 3. they move through the mud using a muscular foot 4.can filter up to 1 gallon of water an hour(large ones) 5. inner purple and white shell is called "wampum" and used for jewelry 6.some shells have almost no purple while others have lots! (info from: The Uncommon Guide to Common Life on Narragansett Bay)

I have a dish heaped with these pretty shells right alongside my sea glass display.  Isn't it funny what little things can make you happy?!

Here's to a great week of beach combing:)

Behind the Scenes at the Sea Glass Boutique

I apologize for not being in touch recently!  An unexpected wholesale opportunity was presented to me and I decided to try it.

I'm making "beachy" sea glass miniature bottle necklaces and key chains.  It's a fun new venture and I'll see where it leads:)

In the meantime, I'm having lots of fun creating new feminine sea glass jewelry designs ( with matching necklaces to layer ) for the Coastal Charms online boutique!!

Spring is here and warmer weather is sure to be here soon.  Hope you've been able to find some time to get outside and interact with Nature!

Have a wonderful weekend:)  

p.s.- my necklaces are in the crate in the front of the first shelf of display!

Sea Glass Necklace With Roman Bead Accents Just Listed

Woo hoo!  March is here.  Yay:)  I'm going to totally ignore the fact that school was closed today and it's snowing outside my window! 

So, I just listed a new sea glass design that I hope you love as much as I do.  It's simple and feminine and here in time for Saint Patrick's Day OR just to remind you of Spring with it's pretty green sea glass.

The green sea glass has been drilled and wire wrapped onto a gold filled chain.  The different thing about this necklace, is that I accented the sea glass with 2 green Roman glass beads!  Yup.  I've just recently learned about Roman glass and it's pretty fascinating.

Roman glass is ancient glass that's been found at excavation sites in Israel and in other Mediterranean countries.  According to Google, the color of the glass was determined by the levels of metals in the sand.

If there was just a small amount of iron in the sand, the glass would turn green.  Isn't that cool?  I purchased some glass beads online and according to the package, they are from 100-400 A.D.!!

Hoping for sunny skies tomorrow:)  Be well.

6 Great Beaches for Beachcombing

If you're anything like me, you are always excited to hear about new beaches to explore!  Whether you're on the hunt for shells or just random beach treasures, these beaches are supposed to be good according to USA Today author Terry Ward!

- Mocrocks Beach in Washington (clams)-Block Island, Rhode Island (scallop shells and sea glass) - Delaware Seashore State Park, Delaware (whelks, scallops)- Glass Beach, Fort Bragg, California (lots of sea glass here, but you can't take it!)- Kee Waydin Island, Florida (starfish, sand dollars, urchins)- and Holly Beach, LA (periwinkles and conch).

I live driving distance to a handful of beautiful beaches, but I'm pretty sure I know what I'll discover every time... green, white and brown sea glass with a chip or two of cobalt or sea foam blue!!  I try not to be envious of the beach combers who post handfuls of sea glass, pottery, figurines, rare colors, etc...

The weather is getting warmer so get out there and explore:))

Have fun:)
