    Sea glass is one of my favorite things to look for at the beach! I think of how long it had to bounce around in water to get so smooth. My in-laws used to live in Naples, Fl so we would walk the beach for hours.

    Last summer my family went to Cape May. One morning we went to Sunset Beach and looked for sea glass. Hey, Sexy Chick, when do you want to head to the beach?

    We honeymooned in Sanibel, FL. But, I don’t remember finding any sea glass there. That would be a great vacation, huh Classy Chick?

    We would always find the most beautiful sea glass, when I was a kid, when we would vacation on the beach in Maine (Small Point). Perfect sea glass colors “Sexy Chick”.

    I love sea glass and have spent many hours combing beaches for it. My in laws live on an island in Maine and there is one beach that has the most beautiful pieces- I have bowls and jars full of it. When we were in Puerto Rico( an island off PR) we also found some great pieces- they have a beach there called seaglass beach but you can only get there by boat so we didn’t go. this pick is beautiful!!!

    “Sporty Chick” where in Maine do your in-laws live? My youngest sister lives in Scarboro (sp?). We’d go camping in Small Point every year when I was a kid, loved it!

    Great Cheabegue Island- in Casco Bay outside of Portland. Mu husband is a “Mainiac”- he grow up in Cumberland Foreside also outside of Portland. We go there several times during the summer- It so great- very laid back. We walk the few beaches that are there everyday. I roped Cam into helping me find cool pieces of seaglass- not every piece gets picked up anymore- it has to be unique!!!I don’t know where Small Point is- on the mainland?

    CAS says:

    Is the ONLY way to get to Great Cheabegue Island by ferry and does it have a golf course? Small Point is up the coast past Bath, on the penninsula before Popham beach and Fort Popham.

    OK Chicks. I don’t live anywhere near the ocean. Can you tell me what sea glass actually is? It looks so beautiful. When I’ve been on a beach I’ve always looked for shells but didn’t know about sea glass.

  16. CAS
    CAS says:

    “Sweet Chick” sea glass is the broken glass from bottles that has been polished to a soft matte finish with soft not sharp edges by the work of the ocean waves and sand. Basicly natural sand blasting of glass. The blue and green glass is highly prized, but you also find browns, clear/white and rarely other colors.

    Mary- once you start finding seaglass you will love it. It is glass that has been in the ocean(broken bottles, ect) that has been tossed around. The sand and surf will make it very smooth- like a pebble. You cant see through a good piece of seaglass either. You also cant break seaglass. you can make some pretty pieces of jewelry with it- I don’t have the right tool but I have made some wire wrapped pieces. See the pictures below.

    Sounds fascinating!! Next time I’m on the beach I’ll have a new found hobby.
    I’m a sucker for finding pretty things that are free!!
    We live on a gravel road and when the county puts down new rock (limestone)I go searching for iron pyrite chunks. If you take a look at LB’s string of Golden iron pyrite nuggets, that’s what I find just lying on the road. Last week I found the biggest piece yet, it is about 30x40mm.

    kcdesigns AKA sporty says:

    I just used pyrite in my pick this morning- thats funny. I would love to see what you do with that piece.

    Yes- look for seaglass the next time you are on the beach-not all beaches have them.

    Cathy, your sea glass is beautiful. I have never seen the blue before. We just don’t find much of any color any more.

    Valentine Chick says:

    I think using seaglass in jewelry is a great idea especially if you’re looking for a new summer line!! I’m glad my pick inspired so much chatter chicks!!

    One of my students found a beautiful piece of deep blue beach (sea)glass during our annual field. His mom sent it off to set in silver. It’s gorgeous!

    I bet!

    Cathy (Sporty Chick), the reason I asked about Great Cheabegue Island is that, it turns out, is where my youngest sister got married. We had an utter blast, rented out the Inn for the whole weekend, went beachcombing before the wedding, the groom played golf before & after the ceremony. Someday I’d like to go back.

    That’s me in the striped pants & white top on the back porch of the Inn with family after the wedding.

    Yes chicky Babe- you can only get to cheabegue is by ferry- this looks like the Inn that over looks the bay and the golf course. It is really pretty. My sister in law lives on the other end of the island but on the same side as the Inn. It is so pretty there and we have seen some great sunsets there. the seeglass beach is on the very other end of the island from the Inn. Im posting a picture of Cam looking for seaglass and some others of the island. We LOVE it there.
