One of my favorite things to do is collect beach glass (sea glass) and beach stones.  I have buckets and boxes of this stuff from the 2 lakes that I frequently visit.  In the photos I have a milk-glass necklace with coral, a necklace made with a turquoise piece of glass encircled with a repurposed silver jewelry piece and a wire wrapped white beach glass pendant.  I'm always on the look-out for new pieces of glass....especially the more unusual colors.

rusticdiva writes: Thanks everyone. Luckily I have a husband that helps me find the goodies. It is fun to try and figure out what some of the more unusually shaped pieces came from. I have some that look like they have some type of safety wire running through them. Gives them nice character. I also discovered that the pieces that aren't so 'perfect' are great for the bottom of our fish tank. Posted: 9:43 am on April 28th

My dh doesn't get the allure of it all, and how I can spend hours upon hours strolling the beach at our lake each summer looking for more wonderful beach treasures. I like to think I'm finding mermaids eyes, etc. lol Love your beautiful treasures. I too have containers of beach glass and just don't get as much turned into jewelry ever, as I think I will. Now that I've learned to use epoxy though many things can be used that aren't easily wire wrapped. Nice post.
